I was just a driver. Between driving I took it upon myself to analyze each child how they interacted with other children or adults etc. I was so good, they made it partner my job description. I loved the people and children. I would work there todaynif they asked me.

Points positifs

Driving

Points négatifs

I was a student therefore didn't get paid

Great environment but really hard work

This is a child welfare agency after all... so unfortunately the work can be very heavy and demanding which obviously affects people on a day to day basis. My team and supervisor were absolutely amazing, the culture is great knowing the work is hard... but the type of work is really only for a certain type of person who is an angel but also a workhorse.

Being a foster parent is worth every moment.

Children's Aid has been helping me since the age of 14 and over the past decades I have looked after over 40 children from newborns to mostly teens. It has had it's tough passages and overall very rewarding to see the majority of the kids in care being happy.

Amazing colleagues, horrible supervisors

I worked for the organization for almost a year on a contract. Working in child protection was my dream job. I worked extremely hard in order to achieve this goal. The job as one can imagine is quite challenging as you are working with families and children in a distressing time and often seeing people at their worst. I loved the work I did with my families. The long hours and paperwork did not detour me from showing up to work with a positive attitude however management and supervisors did. I unfortunately had a supervisor who quickly demonstrated she had a dislike for me and no matter what I did in order to please her she would find another fault in my work. It was clearly observed by other supervisors and my colleagues the unfairness that was going on. This supervisor was new and clearly wanted to make a name for herself, to which ultimately impacted my not being kept when my contract came up. Very clique, and political environment.

Points positifs

Colleagues, flexible schedule, salary

Points négatifs

Clique, supervisors, impossible deadlines

Good pay but uncomfortable atmosphere and lots of raw criticism and little supervision when learning

While I really liked the work and have lots of experience and high secret clearance I was constantly being criticized by a member of the staff who was not my supervisor and not in a kind, informative way. 90% of the employees were great but a couple were against me when I walked in the door for no reason I could not do anything right in their eyes and they made it very rough for me until I left. Worst place I have ever worked in my long career.

Points positifs

I enjoyed the work and know I did a good job

Points négatifs

Union, criticism, unfriendliness of some, back stabbers

Stressful

This will be the most stressful job you've ever had (if you work as a protection worker). It's an extremely challenging job where you will be exposed to very sad and traumatic situations. I see some positive reviews on this site - but these are absolutely not from front line staff. If you are on the front line or working as a child and youth counsellor, expect long hours, some evening work, and a massive amount of responsibility.

Points positifs

Helping kids

Points négatifs

Too much stress

dealing with planning outings and events, made sure that the youth were able to have fun in the summer also while attending meetings that would benefit the lives of the youth in future events.

Great place to work

Great place to work. Excellent team members and work environment. Supportive supervisors and managers. Hardest part of the job is the nature of the job. Excellent things in place for worker well being and self care

work enviroment

Fun place to work with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape, but this is to be expected of an organization of this size.

overall very good place of employment

The Children's Aid Society provides a variety of services for children and families who are in need of extra support, care and access to special services. As Unit Assistant in the Adolescent Protection Team a typical day included answering phones, arranging team meetings and/or family visits. We were constantly opening and closing files which put a tremendous amount of strain on the social workers. I was there to support them in a variety of duties as needed., I learned about child welfare, social welfare and also how paperwork can become priority over actual care when government is funding an organization. That was the hardest part of the job, feeling like my hands were tied because of bureaucracy. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.The compensation and benefits are more than fair and the staff were offered the use of on site gym facility for a very minimal fee.

Points positifs
