Indigenous children are disproportionately represented in Canada’s child welfare system. Harmful policies and practices have impacted generations of Indigenous children and torn communities apart. Change is needed, but slow to come. All those who work in this difficult area must band together to prevent any more children from falling through the cracks, and to protect the best interests of Indigenous children.

The Pacific Business & Law Institute program assembles leading experts from Indigenous communities, legal practice, the judiciary and government to highlight pressing issues and upcoming changes in the field of Indigenous child welfare. Delegates will gain a solid understanding of this challenging area of practice and have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and exchange ideas.

The Indigenous Child Welfare program is offered on June 11th & 12th 2019 at UBC Robson Square, Vancouver, BC.  If you are interested in attending, the discount code to receive 15% off is F15-1516.  The program is also posted to www.pbli.com/1516, and potential delegates can find out more or register online.
