Keeping Families Safely Together Initiative

An Initiative by the Representative for Children and Youth

The Representative for Children and Youth (RCY) is in the early stages of a new initiative called ‘Keeping Families Safely Together’. This initiative has a focus on the early years and particularly how families can be better supported to be healthy, safe, and connected so that their little ones thrive.

RCY is seeking family resource programs’ assistance in connecting with families and coordinating virtual conversations.  Families will be offered an honorarium to honour their time and wisdom. 

Survey Option:

Note that in addition to the guided conversation option, RCY has an option for families to complete a survey. If you feel that a survey would be better suited to the families with whom you work, you can share the survey link found here.


If you are interested in supporting the RCY in this work, or if you have any further questions, please contact Kimberly Mackenzie (Research Officer – Monitoring) at
