Investigation, Assessment and Ongoing Services

Child Protection Services are mandated by the Child and Family Services Act to protect children between the ages of 0-16 from various forms of abuse and neglect.

Services include accepting referrals, conducting investigations and providing short term and long term intervention for children, youth and families.

Child Protection services promote family strengths through the development of service plans with parents to alleviate risk factors for children to ensure their safety. Services also extend to include advocating for and coordinating essential supports with community partners.

Child Protection services are enhanced by the emergency after hour’s services, foster care and adoption. Child Protection families are also supported through the use of Volunteer and Protection Support Services.
