The Office of the Child and Youth Advocate Launches Translated Diversity and Inclusion Poster

OCYA is pleased to launch a translated version of its popular diversity and inclusion poster. In July, the Office of the Child and Youth Advocate launched a poster showing the colours of the Pride flag with an important message “This is a Positive Space that Welcomes and Supports Everyone.” The response to this poster has been tremendous with approximately 500 copies distributed to community organizations, government offices, schools, public agencies and businesses.

Jackie Lake Kavanagh, Provincial Child and Youth Advocate, stated “As a clear sign of our support for inclusion and diversity, we are excited to announce a new version of this poster with translations in French, Mushuau dialect of Innu-aimum, Sheshatshiu dialect of Innu-aimun and Inuktitut.” The translated diversity and inclusion poster can be viewed on our website at PDF icon.

If you would like to request copies of this new version, please contact our office by calling (1-877) 753-3888, or by email at
