Our database that we use to capture information about care-giving families is shared across the province with other Children's Aid Societies. We require your consent to capture your information in our system. The Child Protection Information Network (CPIN) is a province-wide, single information system for all children's aid societies (CAS) in Ontario. When an individual applies to become a foster or adoptive parent, their identifying information is entered into the system. To continue with the application, the individual will be asked to consent to the collection of their information in CPIN and to a search of the CPIN database. All approved resource parents involved with Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions will be registered in CPIN. This enables information about adoptive/foster families to be readily available to inform adoption workers and assist in making better matches when placing children and youth.
