The Crown Ward Review is an annual process undertaken by the Ministry’s Child Welfare Review Unit, in co-operation with each child welfare agency and the Ministry Regional Offices to determine if the placement, services, educational and social needs of Crown Wards in Ontario are being identified and appropriately addressed. The Review is an accountability mechanism used by the Ministry to determine if CAS’s are undertaking appropriate planning and services for each child reviewed. The review monitors compliance with legislation and requirements related to the care of children. The Crown Ward Review findings are based on a review of Agency files, questionnaires completed by the Crown Wards, and client interviews. Each case file is reviewed in the year following 24 months of successive Crown Wardship and every year after that.

The information in the following report is a summary of the 2016 Crown Ward Review that occurred at the Children’s Aid Society of Oxford County.
