Former CAS Worker Thinks CAS is Government Agency
A self-confessed former CAS worker falsely claims that CAS's are government agencies. This is not true and the public are also often under the false impression that they are as well. Children's Aid Societies are private, non-profit corporations, which are approved by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services as such. Staff of Children's Aid Societies make mistakes.
