The Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MYCYS) was created in 2003 to:
- Make it easier for families to find services that give kids the best start in life.
- Make it easier for families to access the services they need at all stages of a child’s development.
- Help youth become productive adults.
The Ministry of Children and Youth Services envisions an Ontario where all children and youth have the best opportunity to succeed and reach their full potential.
The Ministry is working with government and community partners to develop and implement policies, programs and a service system that helps give children the best possible start in life, prepare youth to become productive adults and make it easier for families to access the services they need at all stages of a child’s development.
