Ontario’s Children in Care – Facts from Children’s Aid Societies

Introduction

Child abuse remains a serious concern as many children and youth are at risk of abuse or are suffering from lack of proper care.

Children’s Aid Societies protect children from abuse and neglect, help parents and caregivers build healthy families and provide a safe, nurturing place for children and youth to grow up and realize their full potential. Children’s Aid Societies can only act to protect children from harm when a concerned citizen or professional calls to report their suspicions or a parent calls for assistance. More education is needed to remind the public that everyone has an ongoing responsibility to protect children by reporting suspected child abuse.

BQCMB 26th Annual Report: 2007-2008

Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board
Secretariat: P.O. Box 629
Stonewall MB R0C 2Z0

As requested by the provisions of the Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Barren Ground Caribou Management Agreement, I am pleased to submit our annual report for 2007-2008.

Another very busy year has come and gone for the Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board (BQCMB). As a stakeholder of standing, the Board facilitated planning and staffing between different partners of major caribou management initiatives, including calving ground population surveys of both the Beverly and Qamanirjuaq herds. The BQCMB’s evolving role as a project initiator and fundraiser also helped to bring about the July 2007 satellite collaring of breeding cows on Beverly post-calving ground. Progress is slowly being made in piecing together incomplete data about the caribou – vital to effective management of the herds. Unfortunately, bad weather foiled the attempted population survey of the Beverly herd in 2007 and the census could not be completed. However, a decline in the Beverly population is suspected due to very low density rates of caribou observed during the survey attempt, a circumstance witnessed again by Northwest Territories (NWT) government staff while out in the field in June 2008. Population declines have already been documented in five other NWT caribou herds.

Access to Justice for Individuals with FASD Research Project Report

FASD AND ACCESS TO JUSTICE IN THE YUKON

Submitted to:
Yukon Department of Justice

Submitted by:
Canadian Research Institute for Law and the Family

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Background

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an umbrella term that refers to a range of life-long physical, neuropsychological, cognitive, and behavioural impairments that result from prenatal exposure to alcohol. In recent years there has been growing recognition that individuals with FASD experience difficulties functioning in their communities, and more specifically, within the justice system. Few studies, however, have focused on issues related to access to justice, and whether the justice system is adequately meeting the needs of individuals with FASD.

A Roof Over Our Heads 2008: Affordable Housing and Homelessness Policy in Canada

Moreover, numerous studies are showing that a lack of affordable housing is a major reason for increased homelessness. This report provides an overview of federal, provincial, territorial, and select municipal policies.
