2015 OCYA Special Report: Aboriginal Young People in Care

The Office of the Child and Youth Advocate is developing a Special Report on the over-representation of Aboriginal children in the Child Intervention system in Alberta. The goals of the Special Report are to:

  • Improve Aboriginal young people and families’ experiences and outcomes with child intervention.
  • Push Aboriginal child intervention to a greater level of practice excellence.
  • Collectively influence Government and others to change their relationship with First Nations and Métis peoples regarding Child Intervention.

“We want to hear from First Nations and Métis young people receiving Intervention Services,” said Del Graff, Provincial Child and Youth Advocate. “We want the opportunity to hear from their families, caregivers and key stakeholders about what is important and helpful to them.”

We want to develop findings and recommendations that will make a real difference in the lives of Aboriginal young people both now and in the future.
