Spotlight: Child Welfare

Spotlight: Child Welfare is a collaborative journalism project that aims to deepen and improve reporting on B.C.’s child-welfare system. The project was initiated by The Discourse and the team includes journalists reporting for APTN, Black Press, The Discourse, National ObserverThe Runner, Star VancouverThe Tyee and Vancouver Courier.

This is a public-service journalism project. Its aim is to serve children and families, particularly Indigenous families because they are grossly overrepresented in Canada’s child-welfare system due to the ongoing and intergenerational impacts of colonization.

Stories will be published from April – September 2019.
