The IPA Canada National PlayDay celebrates the child’s right to play!
The IPA Canada National PlayDay is back and we’re growing. We’ve expanded from 11 PlayDays in various parts of the country in 2018 to 26 PlayDays from BC to NS the following year. We hope you will be inspired to join us in 2020 and experience how communities – children and adults alike – embrace the fun, joy and discovery of play.
IPA Canada decided to align its National PlayDay with the National PlayDay in the United Kingdom which is the first Wednesday of August in the hope to encourage the establishment of a worldwide International PlayDay. This year it will take place on Wednesday, August 5th with some play days being hosted in the following days. Please view our National PlayDay 2020 poster here. You can view our 2020 National PlayDay map here.
IPA Canada developed a PlayDay Guide for our original campaign in 2000 that is available for download on our Resources page. Le guide est aussi disponible en français.
For those interested in finding out more about the 30+ years tradition in the UK, please visit the UK Playday site.
So download the PlayDay guide and become an agent of play, fun and discovery in your community!
