Children and Youth in Care Day

Celebrate with us on May 14!

May 14 is Children and Youth in Care Day.

This important day, proclaimed provincially in the Children and Youth in Care Day Act, 2012, is an opportunity to recognize the enormous contributions that current and former youth in care make to the province, as well as the strength, bravery, and resilience shown by these children and youth in the face of adversity.

This year, OACAS is thrilled to use Children and Youth in Care Day to launch our mental health initiative — Take5.

With funding from the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS), OACAS worked alongside our Youth Advisory Committee of First Voice Advocates, 20+ community organizations, and experts to curate information resources, original multimedia content, live workshops, and events for caregivers, children, and youth of all ages. 

Take5 (or more) minutes with us on May 14 to support the mental health and well-being of those in care.
