Abstract: 

Alberta’s Child and Youth Advocate has the authority to conduct investigations into systemic issues related to the death of a young person who had received Child Intervention Services within two years of their passing. Levi (not his real name) was a young man of First Nation heritage. Levi was exposed to neglect, homelessness, poverty, family violence, parental addictions and mental health concerns. His child intervention record closed within two years of his death. This report details the information gathered through this Investigative Review.
