Welcome to Our Network


We are committed to helping children and youth grow up healthy, confident and secure -ensuring they are able to, or enabled to, realize their full potential and develop capacities needed to participate in and contribute to their communities.


The Child and Youth Health Network for Eastern Ontario is an innovative, action-oriented partnership of individuals and organizations who share a vision of better health for children and youth. The Network is cross-sectoral with members from health, social and community services, education, recreation and justice. This puts us in an excellent position to explore new ways to work together, to respond to emerging issues and disseminate related information and to advocate on the behalf of children, youth and their families.


Welcome to our website and to our Network. If you're interested in the health and well-being of children and youth in Eastern Ontario - whether as a parent, health professional, service provider, educator or from any other perspective - we'd like to get to know you! Feel free to browse our site, register for our mailing list or contact us with your feedback. 


If you have an upcoming event, let us know so it can be posted on our Events Calendar.

This should adress the needs of the MFTD and serve as a model appropriate for a review of respite in other populations.
