While the Province established the policy framework and service expectations for family support programs known as EarlyON Child and Family Centres, the service system management role has been devolved to the 47 municipalities in Ontario.  These municipalities are referred to as Consolidated Municipal Service Managers (CMSMs) or District Social Service Administration Boards (DSSABs). CMSMs and DSSABs work with local service providers to ensure, access, equity, and quality in local communities.

Canada Action Programs for Children and Canada Prenatal Nutrition Programs fall under the auspices of the Public Health Agency of Canada who provide guidelines and service expectations for programs.
