Re-Imagining Child Welfare Systems in Canada – Roundtable Series
September 20, 2017 | By TAG_Admin |
TAG is pleased to launch a series of roundtables during Access to Justice Week with community and university partners in Alberta, Ontario and Nova Scotia. These sessions are aimed at advancing culturally appropriate models for Indigenous child welfare.
While these roundtables will respond to local concerns, they will have a common structure and outcomes will be reported in early 2018. Participants will include youth, family members, front-line workers, members of the legal profession and other child welfare advocates. This initiative builds on last year’s Re-Imagining Child Welfare Systems in Canada, a symposium that drew together diverse participants to examine the implications of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal decision in the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society case for self-government in child welfare, and to re-imagine approaches grounded in Indigenous cultures and embedded in communities.
