  • Amendments to Child Youth Advocate Act a ‘Long Time Coming’: Lake Kavanagh

    The Child and Youth Advocate is applauding long-awaited amendments to the Child and Youth Advocate Act, announced this week, that will ensure mandatory reporting of deaths and critical injuries to children and young people in the province.

    Jackie Lake Kavanagh says it’s been a long time coming and she’s “delighted”.

    Former Child and Youth Advocate Carol Chafe had been calling for the legislation to ensure that she was immediately notified of serious incidents involving children.

    Lake Kavanagh says while she is usually notified within hours personally, it was not in policy until now, and that was a concern.
