Abstract:

A review of child welfare legislation and policies in Canada reveals a disturbing story: the judicial obligation to represent the rights and needs of Métis children are not acknowledged. This lack of mandate influences how child welfare policy is taken up by front line child welfare practitioners who can use discretionary measures to represent the interests of Métis children such as identifying who they are and consulting with Métis agencies to best serve them. Governance structures for Métis services depend on legal frameworks that recognize the importance of Métis child wellbeing. In order for Métis agencies to develop Métis specific services to children and families the legislative frameworks that support this infrastructure must exist. We have a context in Canada where this has not been the case yet we have a recent Supreme Court decision that recognizes and affirms the Aboriginal rights of Métis people in this country.
