Council of Canadian Child and Youth Care Associations
A thank you to the delegates like Leona, Kim , Heather , Virginia, Scott, Bobby,
and Maria who attended From Sea to Sea. At what other conference would your
mettle be tested to the extent of planting a warm kiss on a very dead, very
aromatic cod fish in the name of goodwill and inclusion in that elite club of
folks screeched into Newfoundland and Labrador. These folks from Nova Scotia
tried the group approach. Fellowship, leaning and the opportunity to do it all in
a different location in Canada every two years is one of the more rewarding
aspects of attending the bi-annual National Child and Youth Care Conferences.
The Council of Canadian Child and Youth Care Associations is the national body established to serve
as a coordinating and networking organization for provincial and territorial Child and Youth Care
Associations. The goal of the Council is to promote the development of child and youth care as a
profession in Canada and encourage the delivery of quality care.
A potential thirteen member Board of Directors governs the Council. The Directors are elected from
each provincial and territorial associations. The Board of Directors elects an executive committee
consisting of a president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer. The Council is supported financially
by membership fees from each participating association, and by private donations. All members of
recognized provincial and territorial child and youth care associations throughout Canada are also
members of the Council of Canadian Child and Youth Care Associations. There are child and youth
care associations in nine provinces with Saskatchewan attempting to revive the CYCASK. Should you
be from Saskatchewan, you are encouraged to use the referral form below to help with that effort.
