CYAC Demonstration Program at the IWK Health Centre Photo Essay

Child and Youth Advocacy Centres (CYAC) adopt a seamless and collaborative approach to addressing the needs of child and youth victims of crime. The IWK Health Centre in Halifax is the site of a demonstration program where a multi-disciplinary team are working towards the creation of a CYAC, the SeaStar Centre, to serve the needs of child victims in the region.

The project is a collaboration between the IWK Health Centre, Nova Scotia Departments of Community Services and Justice, law enforcement, and the Nova Scotia Public Prosecution Service.

While there are approximately 15 CYACs across Canada, the SeaStar Centre will be the first CYAC in Atlantic Canada.

Join us while we explore the child-focussed approach that is employed by this multi-disciplinary team at a Child and Youth Advocacy Centre.
