Your Legal Rights

What rights do foster youth have?

As a foster youth, you have the right to live safe, healthy, and connected. It’s CP&P’s job to ensure that, when you are in an out of home placement, you are in a safe environment, that you are physically and mentally healthy, and that you are connected to services during your time in care. To ensure your rights while in placement, there is a Foster Youth Bill of Rights. This should be presented to you starting at the age of 12, and each year after while you are in placement. To learn more about your rights as a foster youth, you can access the Foster Youth Bill of Rights by clicking on the hyper link.
