Find Services for Children, Teens & Families

Find a local Ministry of Children and Family Development office that provides services and resources for children, teens and families.

These are some services an office can help you access:

 
Aboriginal services

Culturally appropriate support services designed for Aboriginal families, children and teens.

 
Adoption

There are about 1,000 children in the permanent care of the provincial government who are waiting to be adopted – every effort is made to find an adoptive family who can provide them with a permanent, secure and loving home.

 
Fostering / guardianship

When a child or teen is unable to live with their parents, the provincial government arranges for them to be cared for by either someone they know or a foster family. The government also provides support programs and services to caregivers.

 
Mental health

Mental health offices are resource centres that specialize in mental health support for children and teens – they offer services that include assessment, planning, treatment options (including intake services), consultation and education.

 
Protecting children

If you have reason to believe that a child or teen is being abused or neglected, or is in need of protection, report it immediately so that appropriate action can be taken.

Youth justice

Youth probation officers support children and teens (from ages 12 to 17) who are found guilty of committing a crime – this includes providing community supervision, access to programs and services, or help getting back into a daily routine.
