A Young Person's Right to Know About Us

If a child or youth suffers serious bodily harm while living in care, or while receiving services from a children’s aid society, they must be informed of how to contact the Advocate’s Office. The child or youth must also be told how to contact the Office if they are no longer in care, but they (or their family) sought or received services within 12 months of the incident. It is their right to know that they may contact us, and by what means they can do so.

The parents of a child or youth who suffered serious bodily harm while in care must also be informed about the Advocate’s Office. Parents are entitled to know that they may contact the Advocate’s Office and how to do so, if their child was affected.

The parents of a child or youth who dies in care must also be provided with information on how to contact the Advocate’s Office.
