A2J Week 2016: Re-imagining Child Welfare Systems in Canada - A Symposium

October 21, 2016
reimagining the child welfare system

New approaches to child welfare are urgently needed to address the over-representation of certain groups among children in child welfare care.

These approaches must be informed by good research and take full account of cultural and linguistic needs and experiences of historical and contemporary institutional racism which place children and their families at higher risk for child welfare intervention.

Recognizing this need, TAG along with the Journal of Law and Social Policy (JLSP), Osgoode Hall Law School, the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada and the African Canadian Legal Clinic are pleased to host a symposium, “Re-imagining Child Welfare Systems in Canada.”

The symposium will bring together academics, practitioners, community- based organizations and those with lived experience to foster conversation, deepen analyses, and re-imagine radically different child welfare systems. Find program details here.
