Children's Services is proud to announce the Division's 2015-2019 Service Plan. The plan was adopted by City Council on May 5, 2015. This important tool will guide the planning and management of services for children and families for the next five years. It was developed during a period of significant change and is the result of extensive community engagement and research. Thank you to everyone who contributed!
The Provincial Wage Enhancement (PWE) online application is now available on a dedicated webpage. Helpful support documentation along with related guidelines are also included, such as: "How to" guide and Frequently Asked Questions.

With the roll-out of the revised assessment measure in 2014 we introduced a new name, Early Learning and Care Assessment for Quality Improvement or ELCAQI. Throughout 2014 we heard from many people that the name is too long, or they are unsure what it is called or an acronym we don't like is being used! So with all this being said, as we move forward into 2015, the assessment measure will be known as Assessment for Quality Improvement or the AQI.
Un nouveau nom!
Avec le déploiement en 2014 de l'outil d'évaluation révisé, nous avons introduit un nouveau nom; Évaluation des services de garde et d'apprentissage de la petite enfance aux fins d'améloration de la qualité. Par la suite, nous avons entendu de beaucoup de gens que le nom est trop long et que vous ne savez pas exactement comment l'appeler. Donc, nous entamons l'année 2015 avec un nouveau nom; l'outil d'évaluation sera maintenant connu sous le nom d'Évaluation aux fins d'amélioration de la qualité, ou ÉAQ.
