About Delta Child & Youth

Who we are

Delta Child and Youth Committee (CYC) is a community collaborative in Delta, BC. It has been active since the early 1980’s. 

The collaborative is well attended by representatives from the municipality, school district, ministries, health authorities, and local non-profits. 

Our partners include government, non-profits and other organizations that work with children, youth and families.

How we work 

The CYC has a 5-year Strategic Action Plan 2024-2029: Stronger Together! with strategic directions that are grounded in and connected to the community of Delta. We work in collaboration with Delta non-profit agencies and public partners to action identified annual community-based priorities.
