Description
This primer covers the changes in federal legislation which came into effect on January 1, 2020 from the Act, also called Bill C-92, which intended to create a “comprehensive reform of child and family services that are provided in relation to Indigenous children.” The primer is written by Centre Director and Professor of law Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, Aki-kwe, as a practice overview for those working with First Nations children, youth, families, communities and First Nations governments. It includes background information on the intent and content of the Act, the expectations of persons whose professional practices it will affect, and recognizes the arising challenges upon implementation and the subsequent reactions required to ensure a successful change.
