CWRP Information Sheet #207E. Toronto, ON: Canadian Child Welfare Research Portal

The Ontario Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect 2018 (OIS-2018) is the sixth provincial study to examine the incidence of reported child maltreatment and the characteristics of children and families investigated by child welfare authorities in Ontario. This information sheet examines rates of investigations for Latin American children (0-15) in Ontario using 2016 Census information. It also compares these rates to white children for investigations, substantiation, and transfer to ongoing services, assessing for both disproportionality and disparity.
