Community Action Program for Children (CAPC)

The Community Action Program for Children (CAPC) is a community-based children’s program delivered by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). It was established in 1993 and is jointly managed with the provinces and territories.

For more than 15 years, CAPC has provided long term funding to community groups and coalitions across Canada to develop programs that promote the healthy development of young children (0-six years). Through CAPC, supports and activities are made available to children and their families facing challenging life circumstances.
