About Us

Who We Are and What We Do

The Advocate for Children and Youth is an independent officer of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan. The advocate leads a team of professionals to advocate for the rights, interests, and well-being of children and youth in Saskatchewan.

Our vision is that the rights, interests and well-being of children and youth are honoured, respected and valued in our communities and in government legislation, policy programs and practice.

Our mandate is defined by The Advocate for Children and Youth Act. We do:

  • Advocacy on behalf of children and youth receiving services from a provincial ministry, direct or delegated agency or publicly funded health entity.
  • Investigations into any matter concerning or services provided to children and youth by a provincial ministry, direct or delegated agency or publicly funded health entity.
  • Public Education to raise awareness of the rights, interests and well-being of children and youth.
  • Research and Advise any minister responsible on any matter relating to the rights, interests and well-being of children and youth.

These functions are all interconnected and support the overarching goal of the Advocate for Children and Youth, which is to create systemic change for the benefit of the young people in Saskatchewan.
