Children and youth in care are young people who, for their own safety, have had to be removed from their families, either temporarily or permanently. Of all the cases we investigate, only 2% result in the removal of children from their homes.
Today, to mark Children and Youth in Care Day, the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies is hosting a Youth Civics Day. It is open to youth in care from across the province, and we are very happy that some of our youth are attending. They will gain knowledge and leadership skills that will help them in many ways. We look forward to hearing what they have to say about the Day!
