The Manitoba Advocate for Children and Youth (MACY) is an independent office of the Manitoba legislature. That means we are outside the government and are not a part of any government department. The Manitoba Advocate is empowered by legislation to support and advise children, youth, and young adults of their rights and the services which should be available to them. MACY also has the responsibilities to conduct child-centred research, investigate the serious injuries and deaths of young people, to issue formal recommendations to improve public services, to monitor and report on compliance regarding the implementation of recommendations made by the Manitoba Advocate.
