The Parent Advocacy Committee of the Niagara Peninsula Children’s Centre was formed in 2009 to develop strategies and actions to bring government attention to the needs of children in our sector. They enthusiastically began a letter writing campaign to the Minister of Children and Youth Services. When Laurel Broten was appointed our new Minister in October 2009, the parents of Niagara Peninsula Children’s Centre were pleased to host her in one of her first CTC visits.

Building on the work undertaken by this energetic group of parents, OACRS devised the “Every Kid Matters” family postcard campaign, resulting in over 500 cards being received by Minister Broten from every part of the province.

OACRS, its member CTCs and families work very hard to develop a positive relationship with MCYS.

This past year is evidence of that work and the strong impact parent advocates have on government representatives.

OACRS is delighted to acknowledge the Niagara Peninsula Children’s Centre Parent Advocacy Committee for their initiative, enthusiasm, and hard work.
