Saskatchewan: Children and youth in out-of-home care in 2018

Children in care Child (0-15) population Rate per 1000*
5,227 229,100 22.8

*The rate per 1000 is calculated using the population of children covered under the age of protection in Saskatchewan (under 16 years old).

§ Child welfare services fall under the jurisdiction of provincial and territorial authorities, making it difficult to compile statistics at the national level. The most notable variations between provinces include mandate variation by jurisdiction with respect to the age to which children are eligible for services, differences in the length of time a child can receive out-of-home care and the definition of out-of-home care.
