Please reference the Act itself for full understanding of the Child and Youth Advocate's authority.
Child and Youth Serious Injury or Death
The reasons for this are:
- to identify systemic issues arising from a review of the child or youth’s circumstances;
- to identify potential enhancements to practice or resources that could benefit children and youth who receive services in the future, not to find fault;
- to make recommendations to improve systems that serve children and youth; and
- where possible, to make recommendations about how to prevent serious injuries and deaths in the future
