Thank you to everyone who participated in our three-day event on the following topics:
What is a healthy family? Guidance from youth and Elders;
What is ‘neglect’? Challenging and redefining discriminatory concepts;
Using resources to effectively support child and family well-being;
Rights, legislation and moving beyond forensic approaches to child and family well-being;
Strengthening families and communities from the ground up;
Learning from current federal, provincial and territorial research-informed initiatives.
The discussion outcomes from the event have been collated in a report summarizing the main barriers and potential solutions that would have the greatest benefit to those who are experiencing harm from inadequate and discriminatory social service systems.
