Governance

This year, the Centre launched its new Strategic Advisory Council (The Council), designed to advise us, create with us and keep us on track. Their work combines the responsibilities of a traditional Board (reviewing finances and performance metrics) with hands-on strategic work that pushes us in new and innovative directions.
This new Council has 12 members, including:
  • Youth with lived experience
  • Parent/family members of a child or youth with lived experience
  • Organizational leaders representing lead and core service agencies
