Kinship and Family Care are programs that allow children and youth to care for people they know, usually members of their extended family or community support groups. The decision to organize a kinship service instead of kinship care is generally motivated by the child`s protection needs. The main difference between these two programs is that a child or adolescent in the care of a kinship caregiver is not considered to be under the tutelage of the CAS. A family service family participates in a screening assessment that examines the family`s ability to meet the child`s safety and well-being. A family of kinship services can receive financial assistance from various government assistance programs in Ontario. A family caregiver is a caregiver who, like a licensed nurse, must participate in a pre-compulsory pre-service training program in the province and participate in a home study. Kinship foster families receive the same financial and emotional support from a CAS as host families. The Cross-Sector Agreement on Children Who Are Victims of Sexual Abuse, Physical Abuse or Neglect That Threatens Their Physical Health (PDF: 844 KB; 40 pages) is an agreement between the relevant services, institutions and agencies to promote collaborative responses to child abuse. Protection: under 18 service agreements: less than 18 aids and financial support: monthly financial assistance up to 20 years; scholarships and living expenses for students aged 21 to 25; “Youth in transition” provide assistance to 16-24 year olds; Health care and dental care is provided to youth between the ages of 21 and 29. In Ontario, temporary mobility statutes are based on agreements negotiated between members of the Federation of Canadian Law Societies, which includes the Law Society of Ontario. These agreements are the 44th transfer of guardianship of children under the care of the director.
In reviewing children`s files, we were very concerned about an approach that had developed for the accommodation of children, whose principal had parental responsibility. In five of the files we checked, the HSSAs worked with the child`s biological parents to transfer guardianship – by signing a guardianship contract – to a family member or other person, who then obtained the full parental rights and full responsibility of that child. Officials within the HSSA told us that this was part of their approach to sustainable planning for these children. However, we found that this practice is not covered by the law. In addition, there were no standards for evaluating these internships, either to ensure that children are placed in safe and appropriate homes, or to determine whether these internships are viable and sustainable. For example, care homes required home study, criminal record reviews, child background checks and family services, and an interview with prospective adoptive parents, but these requirements were not met for potential legal guardians. Protection: Under-19s (and as “neglected adults” for mentally incompetent people from 19) Service agreements: In 2014, the government introduced Youth Engagement Services, a financial and other assistance program for 16 to 18-year-olds who are determined not to be able to live safely in a home and for whom there are no other opportunities. The program is also extended to a young person with a dependent stay in a parent`s home, where the household income is less than $30,000.00.
