Message from the Board Chair and Executive Director
Although children’s aid societies (CAS) are accustomed to change, in 2015/16 the pace of change was accelerated as we accepted new challenges when we were publically criticized in the media, the auditor general’s report, the Provincial House of Commons and through inquests. Independent CASs rose to the challenges and committed to work together through a Call to Action that sets out eight priorities: (i) address service delivery issues through consistent application of legislation, standards and inquest recommendations (ii) improve the competence and expertise of child welfare human resources, (iii) improve the structure of the system, (iv) improve governance practices, (v) continue with deployment and sustainment of the Child Protection Information Network (CPIN), (vi) enhance data collection and public reporting, (vii) move forward with truth and reconciliation for aboriginal people and (viii) provide culturally appropriate and responsive outcome-based service delivery.

Financial Services Policies and Procedures
In the interests of taxpayers and strengthening accountability for organizations that receive public funding, the Ontario Parliament passed the Broader Public Sector (BPS) Accountability Act in 2010.
The Management Board of Cabinet has issued two directives – one Procurement Directive and one Expenses Directive. Both Directives are applicable to all designated broader public sector (BPS) organizations as provided for under section 12 of the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act, 2010.
Children’s aid societies are one of the BPS groups that need to implement the Directives effective April 1, 2011. Mandatory commitment to be in compliance with the Directives will also be part of individual BPS organization’s funding agreements to be signed with the Ontario government. Each year, the Society is asked to complete an annual Attestation of Compliance with the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act, 2010.
