All recommendations are followed up by the Child and Youth Advocate for the period of April 1 to March 31 each year. Public bodies are asked to provide updates on progress by May 15 annually. Please note, that as a result of government transition following the Spring 2023 election, we deferred this year’s evaluation until September 2023.

Annual progress on recommendations, as identified by the Advocate, are posted on this website.

Our recommendations evaluation framework is available here. 

Our investigative review cycle is available here. 

For further information on a public body’s response to a recommendation, please check with the respective public body.
