Child, Youth and Family Services Act, 2017 - Phase 1 Proposed Regulatory Provisions - Comment Period Closed

Once proclaimed, the Child, Youth and Family Services Act, 2017 (CYFSA) will provide a modern, child- and youth centred legislative framework to strengthen services and help protect and care for some of Ontario’s most vulnerable children and youth. Proclamation of the CYFSA is expected in Spring 2018.

The Ministry of Children and Youth Services has actively engaged youth, stakeholders, provincial associations and Indigenous partners over the past year to develop policy and regulatory changes to support CYFSA implementation.

Public comments on the first phase of the proposed regulatory provisions and statements of policy were due on January 26, 2018.

Please contact us at CYFSA@ontario.ca if you have any questions or if you need further information.

Additional regulatory proposals are to be posted in a second phase (expected late summer/early fall 2018).
