The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE - Online: www.gov.pe.ca/sss/abo­rig­i­nal­guide

A new re­source has been de­vel­oped by Child Pro­tec­tion Ser­vices to help pre­serve and pro­mote the Abo­rig­i­nal cul­tural iden­tity of chil­dren and fam­i­lies re­ceiv­ing ser­vices.

The new re­source, called Abo­rig­i­nal Cul­tural Con­nec­tions: A Child Pro­tec­tion Re­source Guide, was de­vel­oped in part­ner­ship with Prince Ed­ward Is­land’s First Na­tion lead­ers, El­ders and com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tives. It serves as an op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote un­der­stand­ing and knowl­edge of the rich Abo­rig­i­nal cul­ture on Prince Ed­ward Is­land when pro­vid­ing Child Pro­tec­tion Ser­vices, ei­ther in-home or out-of-home, to Abo­rig­i­nal chil­dren and their par­ents.
