Children’s Aid Society has a legal mandate to promote the best interests, protection, and well-being of children and youth. Interventions by Children’s Aid Society staff involve working with families with a focus on child safety while providing support to families to promote and strengthen their ability to keep children and youth safe.

Children’s Aid Society acknowledges that systemic racism creates barriers for children, youth, and families. Awareness of systemic biases and racism will inform our service delivery. We promote the best interests, protection and well-being of children by working with community and building on the strengths inherent in every family.

Working with families and communities to protect children and youth from abuse and neglect is critical to ensuring that children can reach their full potential, free from physical and emotional harm. A parent or a child may contact us directly. A relative, friend, neighbor, teacher, nurse, doctor, or other professional must make a report when they are concerned for the safety and well-being of a child or youth.

Please see our Child Protection Services Departmental Plan.
