CHILDREN AND YOUTH SERVICES PROGRAM - VOTE 3702

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 early intervention services, such as: Healthy Babies Healthy Children, 18 month Well Baby Visit, Infant Hearing Program and Speech and Language services. The Children’s Activity Tax Credit refunds a portion of fees paid towards eligible activities for children, including arts, music and physical activity programs, regardless of family income level. 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, Youth Opportunities which provide services for youth in high-needs neighbourhoods (including employment and outreach, such as the Youth Outreach Worker Program, the Jobs for Youth program and the Youth in Policing Initiative) 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, and support for children and youth with complex special needs. 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. The Ontario Child Care Supplement for Working Families is a tax-free monthly payment for low- to moderate-income working families with children under seven years of age, born prior to July 1, 2009.
