Patient and Family Leadership Award

The Children's Healthcare Canada Award for Patient & Family Leadership was created to recognize outstanding leadership by a patient (current or former), parent or caregiver who has served to improve the patient and family experience for those accessing pediatric health care in Canada.

This award will be presented to an individual who has exemplified courage, commitment, and resilience by donating their time and emotional energy to promote systemic change at a local, regional and/or national level.
