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.
