Crown Wards Get More Help At School



Ontario is helping Crown Wards succeed at college and university. Three new Education Championship Teams will offer mentorship, peer support, motivation and guidance in three Ontario communities. Teams include volunteers from local school boards, Children’s Aid Societies, post secondary institutions, community agencies, Employment Ontario and provincial ministries.

In their first year of operation, four Championship Teams helped approximately 350 students. The government’s investment increases the number of teams helping Crown Wards to seven. Crown Wards who pursue post secondary education and training may also receive financial aid through tuition grants, reimbursement of university/college entrance application fees, and certain exemptions from Ontario Student Assistance Program income assessments.

Support for Crown Wards is also a component of Ontario’s Poverty Reduction Strategy which will reduce the number of children living in poverty by 25 per cent over 5years – lifting 90,000 kids out of poverty – by boosting benefits forlow-income families and enhancing publicly-funded education.

L.I.F.T. – Living Independently For Tomorrow


The goal of LIFT is to ensure that youth are given every opportunity to develop the skills which will enable them to function successfully within society.

In conjunction with the Child Protection Worker, Youth Services Workers develop specific, goal oriented plans of service for youth pursuing independence, focusing on enpowering youth with the skills and tools necessary for a successful transition from care to independence.

Youth Services Workers provide intensive and proactive services including individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, advocacy and one on one support.

LIFT hosts workshops throughout the year which provide specific information about a number of independence skills such as a seminar on budgeting.

LIFT also hosts holiday dinners for youth and former Crown Wards who live independently. These events provide youth with the opportunity to share a meal with their CAS family and network with each other.
