City of Edmonton (2005)
Innovative Tools as part of the City’s Children’s Services
Framework
 
Work by previous consultants had identified the elements of a Children’s Services Framework. It identified several elements that needed to be developed and YTA was asked to help firstly with a Child Impact Assessment Tool, and secondly with a Children’s Participation Framework to support the overall Children’s Services Framework.
 
The Child Impact Assessment Tool was the first of its kind in North America and attracted attention from both cities and researchers. YTA was asked to document the tool for the Children, Youth and Environments journal published by the University of Colorado in Denver. It can be downloaded from their website (click here to download).
 
The second tool was a guide to children’s participation. This is available from the City of Edmonton.
 
However the work of YTA with the City of Edmonton assisted them to redefine and rebrand the Children’s Services Framework into Child Friendly Edmonton, and that city probably leads Canada in its work toward child friendliness.
