About OACAS

Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies (“OACAS”) is a membership organization representing Children’s Aid Societies (“CAS”) in Ontario. OACAS serves its members, the community, the public, and government, through activities such as advocacy, government relations, communications, information management, and education. OACAS is not a regulatory body – it is a membership association with a mission to promote child welfare issues and influence public opinion.

OACAS’s Challenges

OACAS wanted its web presence to better reflect the wide scope of activities it drives and agencies it influences and collaborates with to advocate for children. Volunteers, government bodies, foster parents, events, help lines and education needed continual updates. With minimal resources, implementing a solution that would support document management, multiple contributors and secure portal access from third parties was mandatory.

The Solution

The new web presence is current, relevant, accessible, user-friendly, interactive, attractive, and inspires active content contribution. Secure portal access enables member agencies to log-in for specific information. Social media is embedded to provide contemporary updates.
