About Child Maltreatment

Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society is a child protection agency mandated under the Child, Youth and Family Services Act, 2017, in Ontario. Our responsibility is to protect children from harm or risk of harm due to neglect and physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. The protection and wellbeing of children and youth is a shared responsibility with the community. All adults have a responsibility to keep kids safe and to speak up for children and youth who need help. We believe every child and youth has a right to safety and wellbeing.
