Ministry of Child and Youth Services

The ministry is working with government and community partners to develop and implement policies, programs and a service system that helps give children the best possible start in life, prepare youth to become productive adults and make it easier for families to access the services they need at all stages of a child's development.

Our Vision

The Ministry of Children and Youth Services envisions an Ontario where all children and youth have the best opportunity to succeed and reach their full potential.

In 2003, the Ministry of Children and Youth Services was created to:

  • make it easier for families to find the services to give kids the best start in life,
  • make it easier for families to access the services they need at all stages of a child's development,
  • and help youth become productive adults.
