Progress summary

The graphic information below summarizes the progress on recommendations received and actions taken, in relation to child intervention, for the most current 5 years. We receive recommendations from recognized formal inputs such as the Fatality Inquiry Board and the Office of the Child and Youth Advocate.

These reports are directly or indirectly related to children who have received services in child intervention. Some of the recommendations from these reports are intended exclusively for other ministries, and Children’s Services does not track progress on these.

The public reporting on progress allows recommending bodies and Albertans to keep informed of systemic improvement to the child intervention system. The status of all recommendations is updated twice every year (September and March).
