CAYAC gives you access to a dynamic group of 25-30 youth, ages 12-21, who have a wide variety of health and life experience. We will provide you with honest feedback and new ideas for your child health programs and services. This is the group you come to when you really want to know what youth think.

CAYAC is available to consult with Alberta Health Services or community child health programs and services.
