As coalitions, we are committed to working with and hearing from parents and community partners to increase overall knowledge and understanding of the importance of a child's early years for develop, which includes disseminating information gathered from the ECMap Project, and use it to enhance environments and services which enrich children’s lives and help them attain their full potential alongside Early Childhood Coalitions of Alberta (ECCA), who now represents the nearly 100 coalitions across Alberta.
ECCA helps to build awareness, capacity and momentum at a provincial and community level to enhance children’s well-being and development through a community development approach. ECCA has a high level of engagement from communities and organizations across Alberta. While every Coalition has their own unique story to share, collectively we are creating connected, caring and informed communities. Each action, conversation and collaboration on behalf of children and families makes a difference in the provincial landscape.
