From CBC News–An integrated, province-wide child abuse investigation unit is expected to open next June at Toba Centre’s new facility in Winnipeg, and will receive $2.1 million to provide wraparound supports to victims and their families, the province announced on Sunday.

“In a few short months, children and youth and their families will be walking through our front doors,” Christy Dzikowicz, executive director of Toba Centre for Children and Youth, said at a Sunday press conference.

“These are children and families who have been let down, who have been hurt, and who have experiences that no child should ever endure.”

Formerly known as Snowflake Place, the charitable organization has been working alongside community partners like law enforcement, medical services and child protective services to facilitate forensic interviews with victims in child-centered environments since 2013.
