Storage of Records
In 2007 the Federation forwarded a letter to Mark Sieben, then the Assistant Deputy Minister of Integrated Policy and Legislation for MCFD. The letter outlined our concerns with regard to the storage of CIC records and access to those records in their unaltered state by foster parents should legal issues arise subsequent to the placement’s completion. We also have to consider the legal rights of children and youth in care, as well as privacy issues pertaining to their records.
