A Long Wait for Change: Independent Review of Child Protection Services to Inuit Children in Newfoundland and Labrador

The Office of the Child and Youth Advocate

This review was initiated by a formal request from Nunatsiavut Government to investigate Inuit children’s experiences in the child protection system in Canada. The authors shared Nunatsiavut’s concern about the high numbers of children in care, as well as experiences and outcomes with other related children and youth services programs offered through the Department of Children, Seniors, and Social Development. This Department is the sole child welfare authority in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
