Child Welfare Announcement MCCSS - July 29/20

July 29/20 - It was my privilege as Associate Minister of Children and Women's Issues to announce the government’s plan to transform Ontario’s child welfare system. The new strategy will focus on strengthening families and communities through prevention, early intervention and seeking more permanent homes for children and youth in care when they cannot stay in their own homes or communities.  This strategy is built on five pillars that focus on community-based prevention services to enhance family well-being; improving the quality of residential care; increasing youth supports; developing stable lifelong connections for children and youth; and, improving accountability and sustainability.
