Who We Are

Access for Parents and Children in Ontario (APCO) is a non-profit organization that provides supervised access to separated families. We are funded by the Ministry of the Attorney General of Ontario and operated by a Board of Directors. Access for Parents and Children in Ontario has been serving the community since 1992. We are the only supervised access providers in Ontario that operates seven days a week.

What We Do

When parents separate, visits for the child with the parent (or a relative) who doesn't have custody may present difficulties. Access for Parents and Children in Ontario (APCO) supervises visits by non-custodial parents (or other relatives) and supervises exchanges; that is, when one parent (or caregiver) drops off a child and the other picks up the child.

Supervised visits may reduce the stress a child experiences, by providing a neutral conflict-free atmosphere where parent and child can have constructive contact.

Also, supervised access can address a number of concerns. For example: there may be concerns about the safety of a child or mother; the non-custodial parent may have a drug or alcohol problem or a psychiatric disability; there may have been a lengthy separation between the parent and child; or there may be a risk of abduction.

Our Mission

To act as a neutral third party!
To provide a safe and child-focused setting for visits and exchanges!
To offer supervised visits and exchanges throughout the GTA!

Above all, we are committed to the best interests of children.
