Description

Dear Colleagues:

I am writing to invite you to public and sector specific consultation meetings that the Ontario Child Advocate’s Office will be holding during March and April, 2018.

The purpose of the consultations is to inform our systemic investigation into the use of physical restraints at children’s residences and to receive feedback from stakeholders in reference to our recently released report, In Harm’s Way? Serious Occurrences Report Volume 2. There will be three ways for interested agencies/organizations/individuals to participate in these stakeholder consultations:

(1) Sector stakeholder meetings organized by umbrella/membership organizations
(2) Public and stakeholder meetings organized by the Ontario Child Advocate in each of the MCYS regions
(3) Written or verbal submissions made directly to the Ontario Child Advocate

We anticipate the meetings will be approximately 2 hours in length with 1 hour devoted to the report and the second hour focusing on physical restraints. We have set aside two consultation meetings for the Ontario Association of Child and Youth Care

  • Wednesday, March 28, 2018 from 6-8pm
  • Thursday, April 26th from 1-3pm

Both meetings will be held at our Toronto office, which is located at:

401 Bay Street, Suite 2200
Toronto, Ontario
M7A 0A6

For those who cannot make it to the membership-organized meeting, we also expect to have sector specific meetings in Toronto (Toronto Region), London (Western Region), Kitchener (Central Region), Ottawa (Eastern Region), Sudbury (Northern Region) and Thunder Bay (Northern Region). The dates for these will be posted on our website in the very near future.

For ease of reference, here are the electronic links to both Serious Occurrence Report volume 1 and Serious Occurrence Report Volume 2:

We’ve also developed a consultation guide which provides an advance list of the questions we are using for our consultation on the physical restraints investigation and potential discussion topics to elicit feedback on the SOR reports. This can be accessed as a separate attachment below and will be available soon on our website.

Sincerely,

Diana Cooke
Director of Investigations
