If you are a young person getting or needing services from a Child and Family Services agency in Manitoba, you should know about the Office of the Children’s Advocate. If you ever feel that no one is listening to your thoughts about what is best for you, we are here to help.
An advocate is someone who speaks on behalf of another person and makes sure that person’s rights are upheld. Effective advocacy ensures that a person’s voice is heard and considered in decisions made about their lives.
Anyone with concerns about the services a young person is or is not receiving under the Child and Family Services Act or Adoption Act can contact us.
