Overview

Indigenous children are overrepresented in the foster care system in Ontario and throughout Canada as a result of historic and ongoing political, social and economic policies. The new Child, Youth and Family Services Act was recently amended in an attempt to redress these discriminatory policies. This course examines both the historic and current state of Indigenous child welfare in Ontario and will provide students with a toolkit for further exploring the practice of child protection.
