At the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa, we are continuously working to improve outcomes for children, youth and families who are receiving services, or in our care. The design and delivery of our work seeks to reflect our commitment to proactive, evidence-informed and strengths-based practice. We are dedicated to remaining accountable and transparent to the general public.
