The Manitoba Advocate for Children and Youth (MACY) is here to make sure the voices of young people are heard. We make sure their rights are respected and that they have a say in decisions that affect their lives. We advocate and review public services in Manitoba to ensure they are meeting the needs of children, youth, and young adults.
At MACY, we’re here to help all children, youth, and young adults up to 21 years old with services like:
• Child welfare • Mental health • Youth justice
• Adoption • Addiction • Education
• Disabilities • Victim support (including domestic violence and sexual exploitation)
Children, youth, and young adults can call us themselves, but anyone can call with a concern: parents, foster parents, extended family, social workers, health professionals, community members, and others.
