Join Us in Celebrating Children & Youth in Care Day on May 14, 2014

There are over 8,000 children and youth living under the care of the Crown and of Children's Aid Societies in Ontario. On March 25, 2014, Royal Assent was received on Bill 53 officially declaring May 14 as Children & Youth in Care Day. This day is dedicated to recognizing the enormous contributions that children and youth in and from care make to the province, as well as the strength, bravery, and resilience they demonstrate in the face of adversity.

Call for Leadership Award Nominations

The Society is currently seeking nominations to be considered as recipients of the 2014 Dave Weber Distinguished Leadership Award.

Welcome to the Hamilton CAS

Protecting Children & Strengthening Families

The Children’s Aid Society (CAS) of Hamilton is a not-for-profit agency that, by law, is required to protect children from physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect.

The agency also helps to build healthy families by working with parents to address concerns and resolve issues that impact on a child’s safety and well-being. The Society provides safe, nurturing environments for youngsters that cannot live at home for short-term and long-term periods.

We invite you to browse through our site to learn more about your duty to report suspected child abuse and neglect, the variety of services and programs we offer, the opportunities we provide to children in our care, how you can get involved as a volunteer, fostering with the Society, adoption and more.
