- What are we doing to live up to those articles and principles?
- Film: Letters to a Street Child
Principles:
- Article 2 (non-discrimination), just by the wording we use (i.e. marginalized
children), we are reinforcing discrimination
- We have a federal system and child welfare legislation is provincial, and we will
have issues with discrimination due to our political position
- We don’t want children discriminated against class, race, family origin, etc.
- Article 3 (best interest of the child), the concept of best interest is a fundamental
concept
- It is easy to make a connection in relation to this group of marginalized children
because the system acknowledges this legislation
- Article 6 (development of the child), if we think children are not fulfilling their full
potential, we may question Canada to what is happening to these kids in regards to
education (are they in school, are they receiving adequate education, etc.)
- Article 12 (participation rights) children should be able to participate and have a
voice in their own lives
- If marginalized children don’t have a voice, this may be reason why they are
considered marginalized. Are there any advocates for them?
Significant Articles
- Article 9 (QC p.416): parties shall respect the right of the child who is separated
from one or both parents to maintain personal relations and direct contact with
both parents on a regular basis unless contrary to the best interest of the child
- Article 16 (QC p. ) privacy article: the privacy of children in care (i.e. reading
letters, monitoring phone calls, looking through belongings, etc.). You would have to
have serious concerns in order to perform these actions
- Article 19 (QC p. ) protect children from abuse and neglect: the state has to have a
system whereby if children need protection from abuse and/or neglect, and the
need for there to be social programming to support children
- Article 20 (QC p. ) mandate that states and societies have alternative places for
children to go if required (that are also culturally appropriate)
- Article 25 (QC p.423) asks for the periodic review and assessment of the placement
of children
- Article 27 (QC p.423) standard of living: confront standard of living and do
preventative work
- Article 39 (QC p. ) reintegration and recovery of children (recovery from what they
have just experienced and been through, and to allow them to reintegrate into
society and move forward)
