Accountability

Broader Public Sector Accountability

Generally, the “Broader Public Sector” or BPS refers to the organizations that receive funding from the Government of Ontario. They are not, however, a part of the government itself.

Broader Public Sector (BPS) Accountability Act
This Act establishes requirements in the areas of compensation, expenses, perquisites, business documents and procurement, and is designed to improve accountability and transparency across the BPS.  The following documents meet the requirements of the BPS and will provide you with more information about the work we do with children, youth and families, the goals we set for ourselves and how we are measuring our outcomes.   

Performance Indicators

Children's Aid Societies in Ontario are collecting data to measure their performance in various areas of child welfare.  This data helps us in our efforts to continuously improve the services we provide to children and families.  Click here to view our performance data at Highland Shores in the areas of child safety, permanency and well-being.
