Canada: Child Welfare in Canada: More Federal Assistance, Less Oversight Compared to US
Chronicle of Social Change – July 07, 2016
Although the U.S. child welfare system is vastly different from Canada’s, it is routinely criticized for the lack of resources provided to foster youth, ineffective policies, and frequent reports of neglect and abuse within state systems. The number of children in foster care nationwide is around 415,000, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families’ data from 2014. In 2013, there were an estimated 62,428 children in foster care across Canada.
