MCFD is, broadly, the provincial ministry holding the responsibility for the well-being of children and their healthy development. They are probably best known for providing child protection and supervising substitute care (like foster care and group homes), but also provide services for children with special needs, child and youth mental health, youth justice, and early childhood development programs and services.

Some of the programs they run are:

  • Helpline for Children – the child abuse & neglect reporting line – 310-1234 (link)
  • Child & Youth Mental Health Services (link)
