Halton Children’s Aid Society is Open for Business in the Halton Community

The Halton Children’s Aid Society (Society) wants our community to know that we are open and continuing to provide child welfare services. Our focus is on keeping children safe within their families and providing support wherever we can.


To minimize the risk associated with COVID-19, we are following the guidance of public health authorities. We are practicing recommended social and physical distancing practices and nearly all of our staff are working remotely. We are accessible via phone, email and online platforms. Our main goal is to help prevent the spread of the virus by limiting close face-to-face contact where possible. Both our Burlington (1445 Norjohn Court) and Milton (325 Main Street East) offices are closed to the public until further notice. Meetings, events and planned trainings have been postponed or will occur via telephone or video conferencing.


“Social distancing is a universal requirement right now, but many individuals don’t have the resources or ability to stay safe and secure in this environment. During this time, families are under stress and many are struggling. Our staff, foster, kin and adoptive caregivers, and volunteers are working tirelessly to support children, youth and families during this stressful and difficult time. We are working alongside so many compassionate and generous community members who are doing whatever they can to help others,” says Janice Robinson, executive director. 


We want our community to be assured that we are here for children, youth and families. We can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 905.333.4441. If you are worried about a child or youth under the age of 18, or are a caregiver who requires support to keep your child safe, please call us.


The Society will continue to keep the community updated and informed of any service adjustments via our website at www.HaltonCAS.ca
