From the British Columbia Law Institute:
Today the British Columbia Law Institute published its Child Protection Project Committee's Consultation Paper on Modernizing the Child, Family and Community Service Act.
In this consultation paper the committee is asking for public comment on its proposals to government to reform British Columbia's main child protection law.
"The committee hopes to receive a wide range of responses to its consultation paper," said committee co-chair, Katrina Harry, a member of the Esketemc First Nation. "Due to the over representation of Indigenous children in the child welfare system, it is particularly important that the committee receives feedback from Indigenous communities, representatives, and agencies, and the committee specifically welcomes and will solicit such input. Public response is important and will be taken into account as the committee forms its final recommendations."
The deadline for responses is January 15, 2021.
