CHILD PROTECTION INFORMATION NETWORK
On April 1, 2019, York Region CAS will join CPIN.
Since 2014, the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services has been working with
children's aid societies across Ontario to implement the Child Protection Information Network (CPIN), a provincial
information management system that allows children's aid societies to securely share with one another confidential
information to make decisions with families to ensure children's wellbeing.
In CPIN, children's aid societies will be able to review what services children have previously
received, regardless of where in Ontario services were provided. CPIN will support timely and efficient service
for children and their families and allow children's aid societies to better manage case files. All personal
information in CPIN will only be shared among children's aid societies, and only for providing child protection services.
Implementing CPIN will improve child safety throughout the province of Ontario. CPIN is part of the
government's plan to modernize the child protection system so that vulnerable children and their families can continue
to get the services they need.
For more information, please review the Notice of Information Practices,
which outlines CPIN, information collected, and how it is used and shared.
