Thunder Bay CAS is focused on the health and safety of it's staff, partners and children, youth and families that we serve and are taking proactive precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. As of March 16, 2020, access to any of our sites (including those in Nipigon, Geraldton, and Marathon) will be restricted to employees, couriers, those with appointments and anyone reporting child protection concerns. In addition, any non-employee will be required to answer a series of screening questions before being permitted entry to the building and will be encouraged to sanitize their hands. If you would like to contact an individual at any of our sites, please contact our main telephone line at (807) 343-6100 or toll free at 1-800-465-3905. We apologize for any inconvenience these measures may cause.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Children’s Aid Societies and Indigenous Child and Family Well-Being Agencies in Ontario ARE continuing their child protection services. We are NOT closed. Although agencies across the province have modified their business practices to respond to health and safety concerns, their core protection services continue. If any member of the public or professional have a concern about the safety and/or well-being of a child or youth under 18, they should immediately contact their local Children’s Aid Societies or Indigenous Child and Family Well-Being Agency. A list of local contact information for these agencies are available here: http://www.oacas.org/childrens-aid-child-protection/locate-a-childrens-aid-society/
