Covid-19: Family Visits

In light of the state of emergency in Ontario, we have suspended face-to-face meetings/family visits until further notice.

This suspension is in compliance with recommendations that Canadian Health Directives to practice social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the best interests and well-being of the children and youth we serve. The decision is also consistent with the practice of a number of other agencies across the province at this time.

This was an extremely hard decision which was not taken lightly. For our agency, the most difficult consideration was the potential impact on the relationship between parents and children.

We plan to make creative efforts to continue contact between parents and children wherever possible. We recognize that this is not a substitute for face-to-face contact between parents and children.

We do not have a date when face-to-face visits will resume, but like you, we are hopeful that life can return to normal as soon as possible.

If you have concerns about a child at risk, please contact us as usual at 905-433-1551.
