The Board of Directors for the Peel Children and Youth Initiative (PCYI) would like to inform our many community partners of some significant changes effective February 8th. Based on the revenues that we have committed for 2017, prudent and appropriate steps have been taken to significantly downsize the organization. The Executive Director will be retained to ensure that PCYI completes its existing commitments and meet its obligations as we look to the future and a renewed mandate.
The Board will use the next few months to thoughtfully re-examine PCYI’s vision, mission and mandate. We will carefully consider how our very committed community partners can contribute most effectively to system wide planning in the Region of Peel. We thank the Region of Peel for their past support and remain confident that as the organization goes forward we will establish a renewed collaborative relationship in the best interests of the Region’s children and youth.
The Board of Directors acknowledges the many important and lasting accomplishments made by PCYI over the past five years. They have been achieved through the strong support of the Region of Peel and our many collaborative community partners, all leaders in the field of children and youth services. We would particularly like to extend our gratitude to the outgoing staff for their strong work in research, the development of new community partnerships, and their many lasting contributions to improve outcomes for children and youth across Peel.
