Aboriginal Child Protection Process (flow chart)
- informs Aboriginal parents of their right to get a lawyer as soon as they've been contacted by the Ministry of Children and Family Development (or an Aboriginal delegated agency) about a child protection issue, and
- includes how to contact legal aid to find out if you qualify for a free lawyer.
This revised flow chart now includes other legal options after a continuing custody order has been issued. An older version of this flow chart still appears in Parents' Rights, Kids' Rights, which has a chapter for Aboriginal families.
Note: If printing, use 11x17 paper.
