Our Speakers Bureau provides free educational presentations to professionals and community groups that work directly with children and youth. These free one-hour presentations are available Monday through Friday, to schools, childcare centres, and community organizations in York Region.

The Duty to Report and Support presentation includes information about how Children’s Aid Societies work alongside the community to help strengthen family well-being and child safety, as well as information about our shared responsibility to support families and to keep children safe, including the duty to report concerns of a child’s well-being to a Children’s Aid Society. The presentation includes education on overrepresentation and inequities in outcomes for Indigenous, African Canadian, and 2SLGBTQ+ individuals and families engaged with child welfare agencies.

To book a free presentation, please complete our Presentation Request Form, and a member of our Speakers Bureau will respond to your request within five business days to set up a presentation for your organization.
