Stand Up For Kids Night with Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada

Stand Up for Kids Night banner 2022

Stand Up For Kids Night is an evening to honour resiliency and achievements, impact, and commitment. This year’s event will be on Thursday September 8, 2022.

Stand Up for Kids Night, proudly supported by CIBC, honours the incredible achievements of the bright and deserving young people we support along with the extraordinary Canadians that have made an indelible mark on the child welfare landscape through the annual Lynn Factor Stand Up for Kids National Award.

During the night we also take the opportunity to recognize the commitment of our generous donors and volunteers and celebrate the impact we are making as a community of allies for children and youth in child welfare.
