Rights for Children & Youth Partnership Conference

Toronto Metropolitan University

Strengthening Institutional Responses: Exploring Intersections of Child Protection, Immigration, and Criminal Justice to Better Support Caribbean and Latin American Children and Youth in Canada will be a three-day, in-person conference exploring intersections of child welfare, immigration, and criminal justice systems in Ontario.

The conference will centre on more significant questions of collective commitment and responsibility to young people, including migrants and newcomers, to identify policies and programs that will more effectively support their wellbeing and ability to thrive in Canada. Our special focus is on children and youth from the Caribbean and Latin America, as these groups are disproportionately represented in all three systems.

The conference will take place from August 16th to August 18th, 9AM to 4PM, at Toronto Metropolitan University.
