Hello CYSN Members and Community Partners,
FACT SHEETS: The Community Development Council of Quinte has produced a collection of fact sheets on six important provincial issues – child care, housing and health, jobs, minimum wage, post secondary and social assistance. These fact sheets are concise, to the point and provide information, questions for candidates in the upcoming provincial election, and additional resources. Please CLICK HERE to view the fact sheets on the new CDC website.
FRANCOPHONE RESOURCE: The Best Start Resource Centre is excited to release the Bilingual Online Ontario Breastfeeding Services directory. It will help service providers connect mothers with local breastfeeding supports and services. Mothers can search directly for what is available in their area or for specific services such as peer-support, drop-in groups or clinics with a professional (e.g., lactation consultant).
Even though a lot of time was spent researching the information, some programs and services may be missing or incomplete. All service providers are invited to check the directory and use the Add or Update tab if they find programs are missing or have incomplete information. If you are sending information about a new program, please review Inclusion Criteria in the footer of the webpage.
