We’re Still Here!

In wake of the recent announcement from the World Health Organization, who declared the coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic, we have been asked to take preventative measures to protect the health and safety of those whom we serve across Ontario. This includes the cancellation and/or re-scheduling of in-person meetings, youth events and large-scale gatherings to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Accordingly, it is with great sadness that we write to inform you that OACAS has made the decision to cancel the We’re Still Here (Youth from Care) Conference that was scheduled for May 8th, 2020 in Toronto. Individuals who have already registered will be contacted shortly. This event will not be held this year.

We would like to thank everyone immensely who planned and supported this event. This includes the OACAS YouthCAN team and Youth for Change Steering Committee who had worked tirelessly since last summer to put together this conference.

If you have any questions about exposure and symptoms of COVID-19, please contact your primary care provider, local public health unit, or Telehealth Ontario (1-866-797-0000).

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this unprecedented time.
