The CAS is obligated to investigate reported situations in which a child or youth may be in need of protection. These are situations where a person has reasonable grounds to suspect that the actions, or lack of actions, of a parent or caregiver caused harm or created a risk of harm to a child or youth under sixteen (16) years of age.

Business Hours:

Office hours are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, however protection services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


The CAS recognizes the diversity of the community it serves and is committed to resolving, where possible, any barriers that limit, impede or frustrate any person's ability to access or participate effectively in its services and processes, especially when these barriers relate to an equality rights status, such as disability, age, sexual orientation or ethnicity.

Aboriginal Persons:

The CAS works at providing service in a manner that recognizes First Nations, Métis and Inuit culture, heritage and traditions and the concept of the extended family.
