  • make it easier for families to access the services they need at all stages of a child's development,
  • and help youth become productive adults.


The ministry is working with government and community partners to develop and implement policies, programs and a service system that helps give children the best possible start in life, prepare youth to become productive adults and make it easier for families to access the services they need at all stages of a child's development.
