The Committee was convened in October, 2018, in response to a heightened concern among community members in Brockville and the surrounding area regarding youth criminal behaviour, mental health, and substance abuse. Since that time the mandate of the Committee has expanded to include all of Leeds and Grenville.
Community Youth Initiative (CYI) works at arms length from EKIOC but through mutual agreement the Youth Service Providers workgroup of EKIOC has merged with CYI to avoid duplication.
CYI meets monthly.
Chair: Don Lewis Acting Superintendent UCDSB Vice chair: Margaret Fancy EKIOC
