Community Engagement

Peel CAS is committed to promoting a culture of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion that is based on openness, fairness, respect and lots of listening. These align with our stated vision, mission and values.

 

Peel CAS has a Community Engagement team that is located in the DEI Branch. The role of the Community Engagement Team is to build sustainable relationships, keep community members informed, provide “Duty to Report” presentations, and work together towards achieving positive outcomes for families and our diverse communities.

 

The Community Engagement team provides information about the agency and the services we provide to our communities. Our presentations are available in English, Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, and Arabic. We offer presentations on the following topics:
