The graphic information below summarizes the progress on recommendations received and actions taken, in relation to child intervention, for the most current five years. Children’s Services receives 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).
Overall progress on 128 recommendations (2016-17 to September 2020-21)
||Completed: the intent of the recommendation has been met by the actions taken|
||Completed/Alternate Solution: the ministry has developed an alternate solution which addresses the concern|
||In Progress: steps or actions are underway to achieve the recommendation|
||N/A: recommendation was not accepted by the ministry|
||Ongoing: long term action required - systemic or standing issues|
||Abandoned: recommendation is no longer being worked on due to changes in resources, ministerial direction or evidence-based research|
Children's Services does not report on recommendations directed solely at other ministries. Starting in fiscal year (2019-2020), this category no longer includes recommendations intended for other ministries. It is a count of recommendations Not Accepted by Children Services.
