Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami is a listed “First Nations, Inuit or Metis community” under Ontario’s Child, Youth and Family Services Act (OCYFSA) and Tungasuvvingat Inuit (TI) is the representative chosen by ITK to deliver services to Inuit children and families in Ontario.
All Children’s Aid Societies, including Indigenous societies in Ontario, are required under the statute and regulations to provide notice and consult with the representative chosen by ITK as the listed Inuit community. ITK has designated Tungasuvvingat Inuit to be its representative to ensure Inuit children and families living in Ontario who come into contact with the Children’s Aid Society (CAS) have the opportunity to receive Inuit-specific supportive services.
All notifications under the OCYFSA should be sent to [email protected]
Please do not fax notifications.
In practice, these notifications will be provided to TI, which will consult with Ontario Children’s Aid Societies and make decisions based on those consultations.
