Important Notice from OACAS: Child Protection Services Continue

March 19, 2020

The Ontario Association of Children’s Aids Societies (OACAS) has asked all Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario to remind our communities that although changes in services have been necessary in response to COVID-19, all Children’s Aid Societies continue to deliver child protection services. As Family and Children’s Services of Renfrew County has communicated, we are available 24/7 if you have a concern about a child or youth and can be reached at 613-735-6866. Please see the notice from OACAS below:

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Children’s Aid Societies and Indigenous Child and Family Well-Being Agencies in Ontario ARE continuing their child protection services. We are NOT closed. Although agencies across the province have modified their business practices to respond to health and safety concerns, their core protection services continue. If any member of the public or professional have a concern about the safety and/or well-being of a child or youth under 18, they should immediately contact their local Children’s Aid Societies or Indigenous Child and Family Well-Being Agency. A list of local contact information for these agencies are available here: http://www.oacas.org/childr…/locate-a-childrens-aid-society/
