A report from the Law Foundation of BC documents how Aboriginal communities in BC are using alternative ways to resolve disputes in the area of child protection. The Law Foundation funded several organizations to develop alternative dispute resolution models in child protection law, particularly for Aboriginal children. The alternative models feature collaborative decision-making, where families are supported in developing a plan for their child. The Report of Aboriginal Child Welfare Collaborative Decision-Making Models, now available in the Reform and Research section of Clicklaw, describes 11 projects that use collaborative decision-making models, building knowledge in this unique area.
