PSLRTA Consultations Relating to Proposed Amalgamation of CASs Initiated by Ontario
Date: April 20, 2011
On April 14, 2011, the Ontario Ministry of Labour announced public consultations relating to the proposed amalgamation of 13 Childrens’ Aid Societies (“CASs”).
The initiative was proposed by the Commission to Promote Sustainable Child Welfare (the “Commission”), which the Ontario government established in 2009. In part, the Commission is tasked with supporting the financial sustainability and viability of CASs over the long-term through the exploration of measures that may streamline and enhance access.
