On August 21, 2019, Minister of Children and Family Development (MCFD) Katrine Conroy responded to our July 18, 2019 letter from the Fostering Change campaign. The letter from Minister Conroy outlines their engagement process over the past year to understand the current state of youth transitions and to identify areas for improvement.
She acknowledges the challenges our letter pointed out and agreed that the program is not flexible.
Minister Conroy has directed her executive team to report back to her on how MCFD will continue to address inequities in current practice.
“We are striving to ensure that all young people transitioning from care receive the support they need during this transition, not just a few.” – Minister Katrine Conroy
