2010 Permanency Report
All children and youth have a right to a family and a place that feels like home. Protecting this right for young people in government care can take many different forms; the best situation varies from person to person. It depends on individual circumstances and desires as well as the ways in which the care system works and is supported. Because of this, an important discussion is taking place in British Columbia around defining what permanency means for each child and youth, what is being done to support family or family-like connections for children and youth in care, and how we can do better at protecting this right.
