Government taking steps to improve provincial foster care system
The government is taking steps to ensure the safety and protection of foster children across the province.
Children and Family Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux says a recent report found that 250 kids were victims of sexualized violence over the last 4 years.
She notes there are rigorous standards to determine if someone is fit to care for a child.
She adds they have revised protocols to respond to allegations of harm or poor quality of care for a child in the foster care system.
