      The Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS) selected the Cúram Business Application Suite™ to establish one common system for managing case and financial information for child protection services across the province. Cúram Software is a provider of Social Enterprise Management (SEM) software solutions. According to an article in The Vancouver Sun, the Cúram solution will provide services to children and families as well as provide data in a timely, accurate manner for the government.

      The article stated that MCYS initiated the Child Protection Information Network (CPIN) Project to replace its existing legacy systems with one solution to manage information for child protection services across the province. The child welfare system currently relies on 53 Children’s Aid societies (CASs) that are designated to deliver services to children and families. Collaboration among CASs is difficult because they use multiple information systems across the province, which makes it hard for caseworkers across all jurisdictions to share information in real time.

      According to The Vancouver Sun, the Cúram software will facilitate the CPIN as a child and family-centered, outcomes-focused business application. The software is designed for child welfare agencies and enables the aggregation and analysis of information to uncover trends that drive effectiveness. It will provide holistic service to the MCYS and will allow the CASs to work together across jurisdictions.

      “By replacing CAS and Ministry legacy systems with one integrated child welfare solution, MCYS is taking a critical step towards delivering more effective services for children and families across Ontario,” said Ernie Connon, president, Cúram Software. “The Cúram for Child Welfare solution will allow the Ministry to remove barriers in order to increase collaboration and family-centric service planning, modernizing their child welfare system and improving family and agency outcomes.”
