Welcome to the Multilingual Health A-Z - Sick Kids
In order to better meet the needs of the families and health professionals we serve, we have translated some of our core information about child health and family quality of life into a number of languages. With this initiative, generously funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, we are pleased to make trusted answers about children’s health more accessible to newcomers to Canada, and to families and health care providers around the world.
In many communities, local agencies help immigrant and refugee families adapt to life in Canada. This list will help health professionals become familiar with services in their province/territory or region.

The parents describe the many ways they are involved in their child's school. They also talk about some of the barriers to their involvement and how they overcame them.
