The Children’s Aid Society is a government agency which is mandated to protect the children of our community from all forms of abuse and neglect. It is obligated to investigate all reported situations in which a child may be in need of protection. In some instances, that child will be apprehended by the Children’s Aid Society and placed in a place of safety being usually a foster home or a group home.
In some instances, the child is returned to the parents subject to a
supervision order.

In all cases where a child is apprehended or where the Children’s Aid Society otherwise become involved with a family, the parents are entitled to representation in order to adequately resolve the situation. Our firm represents parents of families where the Children’s Aid Society has become involved. We assist the parents in contesting Protection or Status Review Applications commenced by the Children’s Aid Society, or in otherwise helping to resolve
these most difficult situations.
