A Community and Social Services database containing administrative social service case records from Child Protection and Support Services (CPSS) - a division within the provincial government's Department of Families. All Manitoba children and families who are receiving protection and support from CFS are included in this database. Data are entered through a province-wide coordinated case management system - the Child and Family Services Information System (CFSIS) - by government offices, mandated agencies and related service providers in Manitoba. Each case is attached to an individual person (de-identified) and contains information regarding children in care, expectant parent support, maltreatment, school, social, and health.
