We have a new fact sheet in the Aboriginal child protection fact sheet series: Understanding Child Protection Mediation for Aboriginal Families. This fact sheet is for Aboriginal parents who are involved with the Ministry of Children and Family Development. It explains in plain language what parents’ rights are during a child protection investigation – including the right to ask for a mediator to help them work with the ministry. The fact sheet also explains how mediation works, how it can help Aboriginal families, how mediation can meet the unique cultural needs of Aboriginal families, and how to find a mediator.
See our Aboriginal publications page for a complete list of the Aboriginal child protection fact sheets.
