Ongoing Project

Working together to help children start off on the right foot

The NPIs implementing with the HEY program provide promotion and prevention activities to help children get off to a better start in life, prepare them for school, and improve opportunities that allow them to grow into healthy adults who participate fully in society.

The CHSSN is the fiduciary organization for the province of Quebec and provides funding to organizations participating in the NPI.

Activities in this Program include: 

  • Planning and outreach activities to help communities assess strengths and needs for the delivery of HEY, and engage community members and potential partners.
  • Community-based activities to increase knowledge of early childhood development and develop parenting skills.
  • Capacity building activities to enhance the skills of community workers to deliver and support effective prenatal and early childhood development programs as well as build the capacity of the community to improve health outcomes for children 0-6 years.

This program is financed by

Public Health Agency of Canada
