Canada: Indigenous child welfare rates creating ‘humanitarian crisis’ in Canada, says federal minister (Includes video)
CBC News – November 02, 2017
The disproportionate number of Indigenous children currently in the child welfare system has created a “humanitarian crisis” in the country, says Indigenous Services Minister Jane Philpott. Philpott sent a letter to provincial and territorial counterparts Tuesday requesting an “emergency meeting” on Indigenous children and family services early in the New Year. The meeting will also include Indigenous leaders, representatives and child welfare experts.
