Children and Youth in Care (CYIC) DayMay 14 is Children and Youth in Care Day

This important day, proclaimed provincially in the Children and Youth in Care Day Act, 2012, is an opportunity to recognize the enormous contributions that current and former youth in care make to the province, as well as the strength, bravery, and resilience shown by these children and youth in the face of adversity.

Take5

This year, OACAS is thrilled to use Children and Youth in Care Day to launch our mental health initiative and resource website starting on May 14th — Take 5. An interactive online space, Take 5 is focussed on reducing mental health risk and isolation for children and youth in care during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The OACAS Youth Advisory Committee chose the name Take 5 to encompass the message of prioritizing self-care and mental well-being by pausing, reflecting, and taking a moment to breathe.
