Children Back, Land Back: A Follow-Up Report of First Nations Youth In Care Advisors

In November 2019, Assembly of Seven Generations (A7G) alongside the Caring Society and Youth In Care Canada helped facilitate and organize the First-Ever YICC Gathering Of First Nations Youth Advisors which resulted in the creation of Justice, Equity And Culture: The First-Ever YICC Gathering Of First Nations Youth Advisors Report.

In November 2021, A7G hosted two focus groups and a national survey. A7G heard from over 100 Indigenous youth and children who had experienced child welfare. The young people that bravely shared their experiences and knowledge, offered more guidance and recommendations that influenced the agreement-in-principle on long-term reform of the First Nations Child and Family Services Program and Jordan's Principle.
