Forward Thinking


Children are healthy, safe and thrive developmentally.


To build an environment that engages youth in healthy, productive activities and influences positive behaviors.


To make appropriate connections and referrals for children to optimize their health, safety and development through improved communication and collaboration among service providers.


  • By improving the communication and collaboration among service providers to strengthen the early identification of challenges among children and their families.
  • By creating a process to provide seamless referrals to the appropriate service provider(s).
  • By early identification of family members demonstrating behaviour that may put them or other family members at risk.
  • By connecting children and families with appropriate services and programs.
