Child safety is at the forefront of a new initiative from the City & the Canadian Centre for Child Protection.
The partnership aims to prevent child sexual abuse and exploitation at city facilities, like pools and libraries.
This project has been created in the wake some incidents in recent years where recording devices were found in change rooms at Pam Am and Seven Oaks Pools.
A multi-phased program has been in development since last Fall, and will begin in City pools. It includes new staff training procedures, a risk of assessment of the pool facilities, and updated staff supervising and reporting protocols.
Phases two and three will move to recreation facilities and libraries later this year.
