Vernon will host 2015 Cities Fit for Children

Dec 10th, 2014 related to Cities Fit for Children Biennial Summit (2015-Current)

We are very pleased to announce that the City of Vernon is the host municipality for the 2015 Cities fit for Children Summit.

Cities Fit for Children is a biennial conference that brings together municipal leaders with child development professionals; parents and community champions to promote and increase collaboration towards creating local environments where children, youth and their families thrive.   Building from successful events held in Kelowna (2007), Langley (2009), Kamloops (2012) and Surrey (2013) we have just announced the events fifth year host municipality as the City of Vernon.

BCHC’s Cities fit for Children’s Provincial Advisory Group will support Vernon’s local organizing committee to ensure continuity for the initiative and to provide support, resources and sponsorships for the event in 2015.

We are delighted that the important mission of Cities Fit – to provide a forum for the coming together of local governments, service providers and committed citizens to improve environments for children, youth and families – will be alive and vibrant in Vernon through their hosting of this event.

Stay tuned for more details.
