The violence of settler-colonialism on First Nations, Métis, and Inuit children, youth, and communities is not a thing of the past – it is current and ongoing. We recognize that youth workers have a personal and professional responsibility to acknowledge and challenge this violence.

Pathways to Education provides youth from low-income communities with the resources and supports to graduate from high school and build the foundation for a successful future.

Through their innovative, community-based approach, students receive four important, wraparound areas of support—academic, financial, social, and one-on-one—which include programming and incentives like after-school tutoring, mentoring, networking opportunities, transit passes to get to and from school, and scholarships for post-secondary education.


Provincial Advocate for Children & Youth

Browse this collection of critical resources developed by the Provincial Advocate for Children & Youth, or visit their online archives.

Established in 2007, the Ontario Child Advocate was an independent office of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, and their work was guided by the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. On November 15, 2018, the provincial government announced that they would be repealing the Provincial Advocate for Children & Youth Act and would be closing the Advocate’s Office. As of May 1, 2019, the Advocate’s Office is closed.
