Alberta Foster Child Fatalities

February 14, 2010 permalink

Alberta lists its Fatality Inquiry Schedule on its government website. The schedules are in four pdf files [1] [2] [3] [4], local copies [1] [2] [3] [4]. Of the 19 persons under the age of 18, 13 have their names obscured because the Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act prohibits publishing the name of the child. These are the children who died after the province took responsibility for them. The names are obscured to protect the children from harm, or conceal the culpability of the province, depending on you outlook. A large majority of child deaths worthy of inquiry are from the tiny portion of the population enrolled in foster care.
