FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Child Development Centre Society is celebrating 50 years in Fort St. John this year. 

As part of the group’s 50-year celebration, the Child Development Centre had Fort St. John city council proclaim February as CDC month. 

Events throughout the month will help raise money for future initiatives and projects. Some of these past events include Donut Days with the Canadian Grind and CDC staff baking cookies with Baking Me Crazy. 

The series of events will culminate with the CDC’s annual Talent Show on March 3rd, 2023, at the North Peace Cultural Centre.

The Talent Show is also turning 50 this year, and the CDC recently highlighted the long-running event by posting a picture to their Facebook from a talent show in the 1980s.

The volunteer-run organization has been active in the Fort St. John community since its incorporation into the Societies Act in 1973. 

The CDC specializes in wellness and support programs for children and families. Their services include infant development programs, physiotherapy, family services, and play-and-learn sessions.
