Recent Privacy Incident
Radius Child and Youth Services is committed to maintaining the privacy and security of our clients’ personal health information. For this reason, it is important to us that we make you aware of a recent privacy incident.
On the morning of August 7th, 2017, a Radius issued laptop was stolen out of a locked vehicle from a locked briefcase and contained on this laptop was electronic client assessment files/reports.
The laptop is password protected, and we have received no evidence to suggest that any personal health information has in fact been accessed, used or disclosed. As soon as it was discovered that the laptop was stolen, swift action was taken by our Information Technology (IT) Security Team and Privacy Officer to minimize any risk and ensure it was appropriately reported to the authorities.
We sincerely apologize for this incident. We continue to strengthen our IT security systems to prevent such occurrences from potentially compromising any of our client information. If we become aware that any of our clients’ information is accessed, we will immediately notify clients directly on an individual basis.

Radius Child and Youth Services provides an opportunity for children and youth to ‘get on with life’ by assisting them to develop the coping strategies and other tools necessary to lead a healthy fulfilled life. I strongly believe that the services at Radius are necessary, which is why I have dedicated my time and efforts to Radius for the past 4 years. At the end of the day, it is tremendously satisfying knowing that I am part of an organization that benefits the children and youth of our community.
We are privileged to join with children, youth and families on their journey to building safe and healthy futures free from abuse, neglect and violence.
Each year, Radius Child & Youth Services responds to numerous requests for training regarding the needs of children, youth, and families impacted by abuse. Radius Child and Youth Services is also available to provide clinical consultation regarding case-specific issues or on various clinical areas. We welcome consultations from local, provincial, national, and international regions.
