Abstract

PowerPoint presentation outlining a study meant to determine if the CBHSSJB has a plan to respond to the pressures of the new Youth Protection law to find permanent homes (adoption) for children in placements over a long period. Objectives: Develop a detailed description and understanding of the foster care system in Eeyou Istchee -- Describe to what extent children are bounced around (placement instability); begin to identify the reasons for this and whether it is important or not -- Explore the needs of YP to see if long-term linkages to university specialists could help to prevent placements and/or improve services (support for YP).
