Welcome to SSCY!

Specialized Services for Children and Youth (SSCY) is an initiative focused on the integration and, where possible, co-location, of services for Manitoba children and youth with disabilities and special needs. The initiative addresses the many recommendations made over the past decade to improve the coordination and integration of services for children and families. It is also in keeping with the direction that the provincial government and the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) have been taking in integrating services and ensuring improved client centred service.

SSCY is an alliance of government departments, the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) and various service provider agencies. The three supporting provincial departments are Manitoba Family Services, Manitoba Education & Advanced Learning, and Manitoba Health. All participants are represented on the Intersectoral Working Group (IWG).

SSCY Centre opened in spring 2016, and is located at 1155 Notre Dame Ave. in Winnipeg. The facility provides over 94,000 square feet of space for approximately 250 staff.
