Save the Date for the Simcoe County Youth Information Fair 
CTN is hosting a Simcoe Youth Information Fair on April 28, 2018 at the Holly Community Centre in Barrie.  Some of the topics for this are transition to adulthood, readiness for independence and community participation.  We want to include topics of interest for the youth of Simcoe County  - so we need their voice.  Please complete this brief survey with your youth, by January 19th.

News About Ontario Early Years Centres
Beginning in January 2018, Ontario's children and families will have access to enhanced programs and services through EarlyON Child and Family Centres. The new EarlyON centres will transform Ontario's four child and family programs (including the Ontario Early Years Centres) by integrating them into one common system that offers a consistent set of core services across the province, as well as others tailored to local needs.

Indoor snow days, adapting winter sports and enjoying community activities are just a few ways your family can have fun this winter.
This events calendar features events hosted by CTN, our partner organizations and other local organizations that we thought may be of interest to your family. New events are added to our network calendar each week! Check out the upcoming dates for family fun, inclusive recreation programs, camp and parent workshops, and coffee chats.
