Government rolls out child care, foster care changes

Government Rolls Out Foster ChangesTuesday’s budget included a pair of major strategies that will shape how the government handles children’s issues for the next decade.

Child, Youth and Family Services Minister Charlene Johnson rolled out a 10-year strategy for child care in the province, and a new plan to reorganize the province’s foster care program.

“This is really completely revamping our foster care system in the province,” Johnson said.

The 640 foster care homes and 400 child welfare homes will be assessed, and classed in different “levels” and funding will be changed.
