BC Law Institute review of Child, Family and Community Service Act


First Call responded to the draft recommendations in the BC Law Institute’s consultation paper reviewing parts of the Child, Family and Community Service Act (CFCSA).

The BCLI paper proposed recommendations regarding changes to the definition of key terms in the Act, children and families’ rights to independent legal advice, incorporating children’s views in child protection proceedings, and other child protection practice and procedural issues.

At our January 13, 2021 coalition meeting, West Coast LEAF shared some of their feedback to the draft recommendations in the consultation paper. Read their submission.
