Islanders can provide their input for the Child Protection Act consultation draft through online submissions beginning today.

The Act is reviewed every five years by an advisory committee on behalf of the Minister of Social Development and Housing. This year, the Child Protection Act Review Committee held public, stakeholder and key information engagement sessions. Based on feedback, a consultation draft is now available for review and public input.

Islanders can submit their input at Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act (CYFEA) Consultation until end of day October 18, 2021.

The Child Protection Act supports the provision of services to Island families and communities related to the safety and well-being of children and youth. Some examples of these services include, the Alternative Care Provider Program, screening and assessment, investigation, disclosure requests, and extended services regarding the protection and safety of children.

Islanders who require another option to submit feedback can email [email protected] (link sends e-mail) or call (toll free) 1-844-444-7771.
