Laurent Commission urges youth protection workers to make their voices heard
The chair of the special commission on children’s rights and youth protection, Régine Laurent, did not mince words when she recently reminded managers that she would not tolerate having youth workers prevented from testifying at hearings or taking part in forums. Minister Carmant echoed her sentiments. With that in mind, we want to urge youth workers to use this forum to give the commissioners a more in-depth understanding of the field. If you’re interested in participating, we suggest you contact your local executive.
The Commission will resume its work on January 8, and continue until May 28. Hearings are scheduled to take place in Montréal, Sherbrooke, Québec City, Gatineau, Saguenay, and Rimouski.
From January 14 to February 3, 2020, commissioners will be visiting 17 regions across Québec to attend various forums, including 20 that are reserved for professionals. Registration is open.
You can also send your testimony in writing, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
