CEO, Child Welfare PAC
As I look back on the numerous accomplishments and growth of the Child Welfare PAC over the last 5 years, my heart just swells with pride and gratitude for all our members and supporters who have contributed to it. We have and continue to provide real life expertise on improving post care outcomes, participate in high level research on youth, and relentlessly advocate on policy development and real systemic change.
CEO, Ontario Children's Aid Societies
Congratulations to the Child Welfare PAC for all they have achieved in the last five years. We know the cost of tuition can deter many young people from pursuing their dreams. By listening to the voices of young people with lived experience in the child welfare system, the Child Welfare PAC is making progress in key areas of research, policy, and legislation. We look forward to continuing to work together toward improved outcomes for young people across Ontario in the years to come.

C. Psych. Assoc. & Child Welfare Advocate
The Child Welfare PAC has done a tremendously successful job ensuring tuition free access to secondary education for a great number of young people raised in care. Young people whose trajectory might have otherwise been very different. They have also spearheaded very much needed privacy legislation that limits access to files on people who have been in care.
