As a young person in care*, you have rights. This means you’re entitled to certain things while receiving services.
If you feel that your rights aren’t being met or respected, you have the right to make a complaint to us – the Children and Youth Unit at the Ombudsman’s Office.
We’ve listed some of the most important rights you should know about in the brochure below. They are your rights related to: get help, good care, safety, fairness, your identity, and your file.
You can download or print a copy of the brochure.
*This includes people who are living in a foster home, group home, treatment home (including secure treatment) and/or youth custody facility.
