Calling Foster Children and Broken Families
December 18, 2010 permalink
Canada Court Watch wants to hear from foster children who have been blocked from seeing their parents. In another posting, CCW says a lawyer is contemplating suing the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers for allowing unlicensed workers to practice social work for Ontario's children's aid societies. Families members harmed by an unlicensed CAS worker are invited to join. Possibly families could be helped if a turf war develops over who can work in children's aid societies. But if the College gets full control over social work, skepticism is warranted. The social workers union will do little to protect families from abuse at the hands of its own members.
Kids robbed of their parents by the family court or CAS wanted
Canada Court Watch is looking to speak to children and young teens who have been victimized by the Children's Aid Society or the family courts and prevented from seeing one or both of their parents.
If you have been victimized or know of someone who has and who who would be willing to speak up about the experience on video or audio, then please contact Canada Court Watch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Canadians must see and hear about what the courts are doing to children.

Class Action Lawsuit against the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers
A lawyer has approached Canada Court Watch interested in seeking out those in Ontario who feel that their families have adversely affected as a result of CAS workers who are not registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers.
Under law, all CAS workers engaged in the practice of social work must be registered with the College. Most in Ontario are not. The Ontario College of Social Workers has the fiduciary duty to protect the public by ensuring that all CAS workers who engage in social work are registered.
Many, including a number of lawyers, feel that as a result of the College not fulfilling its fiduciary duty to the public that the time has come for the College to be taken to court by those who have been affected. It is time for the College to live up to its obligations to the public or to be shut down and put out of business.
If you feel that your family has suffered harm as a result of CAS workers who are not registered with the College, then please contact Canada Court Watch at email@example.com.
