Six out of every 10 children. That’s how many of the children receiving child intervention services are Indigenous.
It’s unacceptable. Every child in Alberta deserves to thrive, no matter where they’re born. That’s why I recently unveiled a plan called A Stronger, Safer Tomorrow, to help our most vulnerable kids thrive.
When I became Minister of Children’s Services 18 months ago, I committed to making life better for children, youth and families across Alberta, particularly in First Nations and Metis Settlements. As the MLA for Lesser Slave Lake, I knew how important this is to my constituents.
Our public action plan involves decisive steps to improve safety, increase accountability, strengthen supports for children and youth. It includes actions to transform how we work with Indigenous families and communities.
