WELCOME

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       Adoption              Disabilities          Mental health
Addiction             Victim support    Education            Domestic violence
Youth justice       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.
