Questions and Answers
1. Why Now?
2. If we participate, who owns the knowledge? i.e., how can our communities be sure that our knowledge will be protected and owned by our people?
3. Why can't the Nations draw down their own legislation instead?
4. How is this different than previous information gathering sessions?
5. Can we be guaranteed that new practice standards will lead to new legislation?
6. Can we be assured that this Re-Design can accommodate the diversity amongst the province's Indigenous people?
7. Is this only about achieving the milestones, tasks and expectations identified within MCFD's Operational Plan, Strong Safe and Supported?
This is an opportunity to develop standards from a traditional Indigenous worldview. The success of this project has a number of benefits. First, it acknowledges traditions as the starting point. Second, it affirms culturally appropriate practice. Finally, it creates a new mechanism for Nations and communities to move forward in their desires for full authority and jurisdiction over child and family services for their people.
