KITCHENER, ON, Nov. 17, 2017 /CNW/ - Frontline staff at Family and Children's Services of Waterloo Region will mark National Child Day with a rally to call on Queen's Park "to fix and fund" a provincial computer network that is taking direct service hours away from children and families.
Date: Monday, November 20, 2017
Time: 12 noon – 1 p.m.
Place: Family & Children's Services of Waterloo Region, 200 Ardelt Avenue, Kitchener

But the glitch-filled system is forcing children's aid staff to spend more time on administrative tasks – and less time on direct service to children and families.
