CHILD PROTECTION INFORMATION NETWORK

On April 1, 2019, York Region CAS joined 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 are able to review what services children have previously received, regardless of where in Ontario services were provided. CPIN supports timely and efficient service for children and their families and allows children's aid societies to better manage case files. All personal information in CPIN is only shared among children's aid societies, and only for providing child protection services.

Implementing CPIN will help 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 our Notice of Information Practices, which outlines how information is collected, used and shared.
