RCY Annual Report 2018/19 and Service Plan 2019/20 to 2021/22

The Office of the Representative for Children and Youth (RCY) recently released their annual report and service plan. The report includes many useful facts and stories about the work of the RCY advocates and the trends they are seeing, their community and youth outreach efforts and a strong focus on improvements for First Nations, Métis, Inuit and urban Indigenous children and youth. One of the specific strategies planned for 2019-2022 is conducting wide ranging examinations of issues related to supports for youth aging out of care.

The report includes a reminder that on July 3, 2019, RCY’s mandate was expanded to allow the Representative to advocate for adults up to their 24th birthdays who have aged out of care and who are eligible for an Agreement with Young Adults or a tuition waiver.
