Ontario has passed the Child, Youth and Family Services Act (CYFSA). The legislation, once proclaimed, will put children at the centre of decision-making, and support more accountable, responsive and accessible child and youth services. It will also strengthen oversight for children’s aid societies and licensed residential services.
The Ministry has released the first phase of draft regulations/policy statements for public input. These regulations/policy statements will remain open for input until January 26, 2018.
The postings are available for review on the Ministry’s website at www.ontario.ca/yourvoicematters.
