About Children and Youth in Care

Improving the Educational Outcomes for CYIC

Achieving Excellence, the government’s renewed vision for education, includes a focus on equity which will ensure the best possible learning opportunities and supports for students who may be at risk of not succeeding including children and youth in care.

In September 2014, the Premier’s office released a Ministry of Education mandate letter providing direction on closing the achievement gap for children and youth in care.

Since 2008, as part of the Student Success Strategy, the Ministry of Education (EDU) has partnered with the Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS) and the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities on several initiatives to improve educational outcomes for children and youth in the care of, or receiving services from, Children’s Aid Societies (CASs) in the province.
