Ottawa CAS Interfering with Memberships to Public

An Ottawa resident has contacted the Foster Care Council of Canada to inform us of the fact that he or she went to the Ottawa Children's Aid Society to request a membership application only to be told they did not know what he or she was talking about, and instead, offered the Ottawa resident a volunteer package to fill out.

The Society is either intentionally putting up roadblocks to members of the public who want to obtain a membership with the Society, or have neglected to train their staff members and receptionists on memberships.

Either way this negligence leaves a huge gap in the only form of accountability and transparency of the services the Society provides to the most vulnerable members of the community.
