Ministry of Children and Youth Services


The Residential Services Review Panel wishes to acknowledge the many individuals who participated in the consultation process, with particular gratitude to the young people who so courageously shared their experiences. Their stories matter. The Panel also gratefully acknowledges the very thoughtful and detailed submissions made by many individuals, professional associations and service providers.

Many of these submissions are not cited explicitly, however, collectively they all helped to shape the Panel's exploration of the residential services system in Ontario and its recommendations to improve that system.
