CAS Refusing Memberships
September 27, 2005 permalink
Earlier we posted a letter from the Children's Aid Society of Waterloo Region denying membership to an applicant, even though that applicant was a resident of the area served. Here is another one, this time in Ottawa. This now looks like a province-wide policy.
Hello France Clost,
I recently submitted an membership application with the Children's Aid Society of Ottawa accompanied by a cheque to cover the membership fee. In return, I received a letter from the Society denying me membership with no explanation other than to say that membership was denied.
I would like to initiate an official complaint with the Society regarding this matter in order to discover the reason(s) for the Society's decision to deny my membership request and to learn what I can do to improve my chances of obtaining a Society membership in the future.
