In British Columbia, Success By 6® is a unique partnership among the Credit Unions of BC, United Ways, the BC Government through the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) and our communities.

Since April 2003, the Early Childhood Development Provincial Partnership (ECDPP) has successfully facilitated the development of Success By 6® initiatives that reach close to 250 communities across the province, bringing together hundreds of key leaders from all sectors (business, labor, health, education, social services, Aboriginal communities, etc), and raising millions of dollars worth of contributions, including cash and in-kind donations. Funds raised in local communities will stay in the community to support identified early childhood development priorities.

In collaboration with local communities and early childhood development professionals, the ECDPP continues to build “child-friendly” communities and support the healthy growth and development of young children and their families.
