Each province and territory in Canada has its Child Support Table. In Ontario Child Support Guidelines, the child support is made up of two components:
- The table amount (a basic monthly child support amount that covers food, clothing and school supplies); and
- Special and extraordinary expenses (usually called Section 7 expenses that covers child care expenses, health care expenses etc.).
The goals of the Child Support Guidelines is to establishing a reasonable support standard, making child support amount objective to reduce conflict between the parents, enabling similar treatment of parents and children in identical situations and increasing efficiency of the child support process and creating more awareness amongst parents to encourage settlements.

In Ontario, child protection law is governed by the Child, Youth and Family Service Act, 2017 (CFSA). Child protection proceedings are commenced by child protection agencies whenever there are concerns that a child is at risk or harm, or is being harmed emotionally, physically, or sexually. The safety and well-being of the child are the primary factors guiding the actions and beliefs of Society.
Some of the factors that will determine entitlement to support, as well as the duration of the support obligation, include: The length of the relationship, the roles played by each spouse throughout the relationship, the age of the spouses at the time of separation, the ability of one spouse to support the other and, the ability of the recipient spouse to become self-sufficient
They may have reason to apprehend any child in the below situations::
• Emotional or physical abuse
• Alcohol or drug abuse
• Mental issues and/or
• Neglect issues or domestic violence situation
Child Protection agencies are usually called Children’s Aid Society or CAS. There are many such agencies throughout Ontario. For a list of these agencies, please visit
If a child is apprehended by the Society, it must as soon as practicable, but in any event no more than five days after:
• Return the child to the person who has custody of the child, or who last had care of the child; or
• Have the child remain in the care of the Society under a temporary care agreement; or
• Bring the matter to court to obtain an interim order for the Society to maintain care of the child.
Getting proper legal representation is crucial as these cases have specific vital statutory timelines. If the child has been in the Society’s Care for long, it is more likely that they may apply to the court requesting for ‘Crown Ward ship’ for the child. The Crown Ward ship is granted if a permanent placement for the child remains with the Society.
The Society has many ways of intervention without necessarily taking the child into their custody including: Support services and agreements, Family conferences, take-charge provisions, Mediation, and Protective intervention orders.
