Assisting and Protecting Every Child
Every child should be able to count on everyone in his life: his parents, extended family, friends, neighbours, school, community organizations, police, legal network, and our health and social services network.
We are all directly or indirectly involved in assisting and protecting our children.
With a focus on our future and on improving our services, we have implemented an action plan for youth and their families (Plan d’action pour les jeunes et leur famille).

The new version of the action plan for youth and their families is built around the four thrusts in the CIUSSS de l'Estrie – CHUS's brief Pour que la protection des enfants devienne l'affaire de tous, submitted to the Special Commission on the Rights of the Child and Youth Protection. Its content is the result of a collaborative effort between the various internal and external partners in the Estrie region, focusing on young people and their families. This is a concerted plan that will allow us to deploy a social safety net that provides a better response for children and families.
