The Child Advocacy Centre of Simcoe/ Muskoka

About Us

Based on an internationally recognized, best-practice model of care, the Child & Youth Advocacy Centre Simcoe Muskoka (CYACSM), promotes and delivers excellence in child/youth abuse response, investigation and prevention while minimizing trauma and promoting the well-being of children, youth and their families during the investigative process, any court proceedings and beyond.

This commitment starts with enhancing the quality and effectiveness of the investigating interview with the best interest, comfort, and safety of the child in mind. With the unique wrap around support of a Child & Youth Advocate, children, youth and their non-offending family members have the support and information they need as they move along their healing journey.

The CYACSM has two child/youth friendly locations: Barrie and Orillia. With the recent addition of a new Mobile Unit, all children and youth who have been physically or sexually assaulted, throughout the regions of Simcoe County and Muskoka, will have easy access to this best practice, trauma informed model of service.
