Abstract

In the summer of 2001, the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay (CBHSSJB) began to consider the development of an outreach services and support program within the Readaptation Services division. In order to ensure that any program developed would meet the needs of the Cree communities, and would be seen as appropriate to the families, culture, and realities of the Cree people, it was decided to make an inquiry into what supports and services would be seen and experienced as appropriate by the people who might use them; specifically the youth, families and service delivery personnel. Unfortunately, the full inquiry was not completed due to the inability of the contracted interviewer to complete the required interviews with young people and families who were initially identified as the informants for this inquiry. This report, therefore, summarizes the process and outcome of this process of inquiry up until the time the research was cancelled in the spring of 2004. This report serves primarily, then, as a documentation of process for the records.
