Meeting Notes


Neil Wilson is the Founder of the Ottawa International Writers Festival
<>  He has been working with the
Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) on a number of literacy
initiatives for the past 20 years working with community leaders and
educators on discoversing and delivering exciting child centred initiatives
that empower kids and young learners.

The Republic of Childhood was launched in the Fall of 2017 and is inspired
by the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Republic is partnering
with the Ottawa Public Library and a number of social housing
