Child Intervention System Review - Alberta Human Services - Government of Alberta

Child Intervention System Review

The Government of Alberta has accepted 10 recommendations made by a panel of specialists from across the country asked to examine Alberta’s child intervention system and to bring forward leading practices and ways the system can be strengthened to support at-risk children, youth and families.


In July 2009, Children and Youth Services announced a review panel, led by two child intervention specialists, would look at Alberta’s child intervention system to identify existing strengths, bring forward leading practices, and suggest ways the system may be strengthened to support the province’s most vulnerable and at-risk children, youth and families.

The review panel examined the following questions:

  • Are the necessary checks, balances and processes in place to ensure accountability and transparency in the child intervention system?
  • Does the system have the capacity to effectively respond to emerging societal trends, service demands, and evolving workforce and practice issues?
  • Is the system organized and aligned with leading practices and evidence-based research?

Review Panel

Thank you to the more than 1,800 Albertans who provided their input into the Discussion Guide Questions and Survey.
