Hot off the press: Aboriginal Child Protection Process (flow chart)

childProtection_hug.png

We’ve revised and reprinted the Aboriginal Child Protection Process flow chart. This poster is a helpful tool for advocates and community workers working with Aboriginal families navigating the child protection process. It gives a step-by-step overview of the Aboriginal child protection process and reminds families that they have the right to get legal advice. The poster also shows:

  • at what stages in the process the Ministry of Children and Family Development (or delegated Aboriginal agency) must notify a child’s Aboriginal community, and
  • gives information about how a mediator can help families during the child protection process.

We’ve updated this poster to include other legal options if a child is under a continuing custody order.
