Triple P - "Positive Parenting Program"

April 23-30, 2016 is National Immunization Awareness Week in Canada

National Immunization Awareness Week marks an opportunity to celebrate the success of immunization and remind Canadians about the importance of getting immunized. Before the availability of vaccines in Canada, diseases such as measles, diphtheria and polio killed many Canadians. Others were left with serious and debilitating conditions. These illnesses are now preventable by immunization.

The Government of Canada has a suite of information materials available: 

ImmunizeCA, an innovative mobile vaccine application (app), can help make sure you and your family’s immunizations are up-to-date. You can download this free mobile app to stay informed and manage your own, and your family’s vaccinations. 

A Parent’s Guide to Vaccination, one of the Public Health Agency of Canada’s most requested publications, helps parents understand the protection that vaccines offer. 

First Nations and Inuit parents and caregivers can find helpful information on how vaccines protect your children and how to ensure they receive their immunization.

Awareness materials including a downloadable poster, infographic and video are available at

Vaccines are also important when you travel outside of Canada where some diseases may be more prevalent due to lower vaccination rates or other factors.

Would you like to become more directly involved in consultation and research activities?  If you want to have a say, please feel welcome to sign up for Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada’s new stakeholder engagement registry (Consultation and Stakeholder Information Management System or CSIMS).

Using Technology to Discover about the French Language

 Why did I like about the QR code activity ?
  • - It was like an Easter egg hunt
  • - Is was  super fun because we had to get up and go look for information instead of having it in front of us
  • - I liked it because instead of copying off the board we got to to it our selves and look around
What did it help you learn?
  • - It helped my learn the meaning of the word because I had to find it
  • - Now I know most of the words I was going to have to study for the test
  • - It helped my spell the French words better
What did you notice about your class today?
  • -I noticed everyone very focused
  • -It is usually very loud in our class and it was quieter because everyone was working
  • -People helping each other
Check out how engaged we are while learning about Canada's other official language!
