By its didactic approach, this handbook expounds youth protection law in Québec. It is intended for beginners as well as experienced persons who wish to deepen their knowledge of the legal aspects associated with this field.
Following major changes in 2017, this work incorporates the findings of both the Viens and Laurent Commissions, notably on Indigenous children. Furthermore, it underscores the important modifications brought by Bill 15, in 2022. The preamble and the guiding principles of the Y.P.A. are thus examined, as well as the rules governing confidentiality and the parameters of an intervention.
The evolutionary process underlying the social and judicial approach of the Québec model is described. The text also deals with consequences associated with the infringement of a child’s rights, as well as his testimony, professional secrecy and other related topics.
This book demystifies the practice of child welfare by relying on abundant case law which illustrates the application of the numerous principles involved. It also contains the legal statutes and regulations presently in effect. Great care was afforded to guide and equip the reader through the different stages of an intervention respecting vulnerable youths.
