Video tour of the Centre and our Collection
The Centre began with a donation by the Honourable Landon Pearson to Carleton University, which included her extensive collection of books, documents and reports collected over a lifetime of engagement with children. The collection comprises over 10,000 documents including archival materials that document the evolution over time of perceptions of childhood and conceptions of children’s rights both in Canada and internationally.
