We are pleased to present our 2022-2023 Annual Report in English and French that captures our work over the past fiscal year to support and strengthen our workplace and Service delivery.

As North America’s largest board-governed child welfare agency, our communities look to our Agency to support children, youth, and families. In turn, we support our staff by building an award-winning workplace that’s focused on engagement, equity, and continuous learning. As explored in the Annual Report, our focus has been on enhancing our equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives, expanding our leadership programs, and evaluating next steps in our return to office plan.

Every day at CAST, our staff across the Agency come together to uphold our vision of a city where children are safe, families are strong, and communities are supported. We do this through championing Service delivery, partnerships and interventions that are rooted in equity, diversity, and inclusion, and designed to support and strengthen families. These Service strategies, as featured in the Annual Report, have supported us in reducing the number of children and youth coming into our care and addressing disparity and disproportionality in our work.

We’d like to thank our staff, Board members, partners, and extended community for your continued support as we provide our services to children, youth, and families.
