Our Committees

OACYC Committees

The OACYC has several committees that work directly with the Board of Directors. If you have an interest in contributing to the work being conducted to advance the field of Child and Youth Care in Ontario, please contact the committee you are interested in joining via the committee email.



The Chronicle Committee is responsible for coordinating the development and distribution of the quarterly newsletter – to educate and celebrate the Child and Youth Care field. Fun fact: The Chronicle is one of the only consistently distributed provincial newsletters across Canada!

Advocacy and Legislation


The Legislation Committee is responsible for advancing the efforts towards regulation of the field of Child and Youth Care. This often involves coordinating campaigns and awareness building activities across the province.



The Conference committee is the key to developing and delivering amazing provincial conferences in Ontario. They work with a selected community to plan and coordinate the bringing together of hundreds of Practitioners nationally and internationally biannually.



The Membership Committee is tasked with coordinating membership drives, facilitating renewal time, exploring membership benefits and keeping a pulse on the needs of Association members and prospective members.

Student Amplifiers


The Student Amplifiers Committee is unique to our province. This committee is comprised of current Child and Youth Care students across the province who help connect/keep connected students in College and University programs. Amplifiers have been integral to the success of past conferences!



The awards committee facilitates and coordinates the recruitment of the awards selection committee. This committee is also responsible for scheduling and announcing award recipients.

The Association is committed to providing persons with disabilities the same opportunity to access our goods and services and to benefit from those services, in the same place and in a similar way as other members. The Association welcomes and encourages interest from people with disabilities and will make every effort to accommodate their participation in Association related activities.
