Back to the Ministry of Children and Youth Services Summary page

Children and Youth Services programs include Healthy Child Development, Children and Youth at Risk, Specialized Services and the Ontario Child Benefit. Healthy Child Development supports a combination of screening, assessment and intervention services and parent and child development programs, such as: Preschool Speech and Language program, Blind-Low Vision, Healthy Babies Healthy Children and Ontario Early Years Centres. Children and Youth at Risk includes Child Protection, residential and community-based programs and services, Child and Youth Mental Health, Aboriginal children and youth, services for youth in high-needs neighbourhoods (including employment and outreach) and Youth Justice Services for youth-in, or at-risk for, conflict with the law. Specialized Services support children and youth with a range of special needs, including autism services, rehabilitation services (speech/language, occupational and physical therapy), and respite programs. The Ontario Child Benefit is an income-tested, non-taxable financial benefit that supports low-income families with children under the age of 18, whether they are working or not. The Ontario Child Benefit equivalent is provided to children's aid societies to provide children and youth in care with increased access to social, educational and recreational opportunities and a savings program to help older youth leave care.
