LEGAL AID ETHICS HOTLINE:      (Ontario)    1-877-312-7753                (added - Oct 2015)

If a Legal Aid lawyer abuses LAO funding by failing to show up for court, dumping your case, botching your case by "Ineffective Representation", improper service of documents, failing to be prepared for court, etc, there may be grounds for LAO to investigate them. Have your materials ready, be concise on what the issues are and where the conduct of the lawyer or abuse of the LAO funding impacted your case.

Arrange your own drug tests through your family Doctor or through independent Labs. Make an appointment and bring your government ID, ask if the lab is a 'clinically accredited' or a 'forensically accredited' Lab. Be sure to ask for a court admissible report. Never use a Lab where the sample is accepted by mail, those reports are suspect and not admissible in court without a positive ID and collection of hair, urine or blood samples on site by qualified technicians.

Viaguard Drug Testing:  >>          416-691-4167   Visit the Lab with your ID for a court admissible test. >>                   - CAS will claim test reports should be dismissed for a lack of 'Chain of Custody'

                                                                                        Use a walk-in lab accredited for drug testing. With mail-in tests, a drug user
                                                                                        could get a 'clean' sample from someone else.

Seeing your family doctor or other service provider for mental health assessment and treatment demonstrates 'insight' and 'self help' that you can use in your CAS case. Be sure to get copies of all records immediately for your affidavits and copies sent to your family doctor. Always collect evidence of your progress and use them to dismiss or minimize CAS claims.

CASs use Parenting Capacity Assessments and 'their' Doctors usually to deny treatment to parents to force children into Crown Ward custody (we never use the CAS word "care").  If you have a manageable mental health issue and a treatment plan, there's no reason not to have your children at home.  Pack your OHIP Card (Ontario) and go over to the Centre For Addiction and Mental Health ('CAMH') at 250 College Street, Toronto and visit the emergency / admissions department.  Don't visit CAMH on Queen Street since they don't have facilities for walk-ins.  Other CAMH locations are spread elsewhere in Ontario.

We get many requests for an unbiased Doctor to do assessments and over time we have found doctors that fit the bill. It's key that every person seeking an independent and fair assessment, must actually be well adjusted without any parenting deficits. Consult your family doctor for a good doctor letter, if he or she declines, you may have issues to address. Read our 'No BS Guide to Parenting Assessments' and use online tests to see how you do. Independent parenting assessments will cost you from $8,000 to $15,000. If you have the resources for assessment, you should have the resources for a good lawyer, see our 'Getting help in your CAS Case'.  If you are on a Legal Aid Certificate, you won't be able to afford an independent assessment, OHIP does not cover Psychologists. You need a good medical history for a good outcome, ie, no mental health, personality disorders, addiction issues or medical records of suspicious child injuries, etc. In some cases it's possible to hire a doctor for less to review a CAS Doctor's report together with the disclosed working notes, but it does not carry the same weight as a full assessment in court.  As a courtesy to good doctors, their info is not publicly posted here.

Visit the Contact Page and Email your request, outlining your assessment issues, we fully assist genuine requests.


Computerized MMPI-2 self-test:
Very common mental health / personality assessment tool.  All 567 questions long takes 1.5 to 2hrs to do. Last question answered flips the
screen to Summary Table of Scores, mark and  save entire block, drag onto MS  word document, save and print.  Don't try to outsmart test,
detects lying easily, L Scale valid only under ~8, most other T-Scores good under 65, 66-75 caution, 76 + serious, 90+ very bad.  Layman's
Guide is on the Publications Page.  For best results, answer honestly, first response that comes to mind.  While many questions appear unusual, the answers are not judged individually but cross-referenced to all other questions and weighted against a statistical profile of millions of tests of all personality types.  If you have high scores, see family doctor for a referral, this demonstrates self-help and insight. Walk-in mental health assessment and treatment usually available at CAMH, College St, Toronto, Ontario.  Do not 'practice' the test, subsequent results will deteriorate. Use once only, 'practice affect' shows up if repeated within 6 months or sooner. Credit for MMPI-2 tests to University of Minnesota USA and subsequent owners.  Also see the Publications Page for MMPI-2 and PCA / Parenting Assessment related How-to Guides.

In Ontario, 'Children's Aid Societies' ('CAS') can also be called Catholic Children's Aid Societies ('CCAS'), Family & Child Services ('FACS') or Jewish Family & Child Services ('JF&CS'). All operate under the Child and Family Services Act ('CFSA') and are paid by the Ontario government to provide 'services' on a per case basis, ie, more cases, more pay. Currently, they pocket $1.6 Billion* of public funding per year, a significant portion is by financial fraud via Crown Ward orders obtained by civil Fraud and some double billing practices. 

Note that CAS Annual Reports are not audited for accuracy and are missing key information like: How many Crown Wards are in Custody, how much income they generate, how many years they are kept in custody, how little is done to provide adoption services, how many
Crown Ward Orders are obtained by Fraud annually, how many children are denied treatment orders by misleading a court:

OACAS is the Ontario Association of Children's Aid Societies representing all CASs in Ontario.  It is funded with Public Money obtained from member CASs.  It acts as a lobby group for the (private interests) of the member CASs when dealing with the provincial ministry and the public.   Many OACAS employees came from various CASs across Ontario that routinely obtained Crown Ward orders by Fraud. As a result, OACAS does nothing to curb abuses or Fraud by it's member CASs.
