Kids’ CBC celebrates and empowers Canadian children and families by giving them a voice and creating smart, forward-thinking content that promotes the development and well-being of the whole child.

Our educational mandate is to create and air shows that are not only age-appropriate, but which also actively promote healthy child development in all areas - cognitive, social, creative, emotional and physical.  In addition to our award-winning Kids’ Canada interstitial content (which specifically targets the five main areas of development), the programs in our lineup, both on air and online, have been carefully selected to reflect a balance of the core developmental domains.
