Alberta: Office of the Child and Youth Advocate Alberta
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. Peter (not his real name) was a young man of First Nation heritage who became involved with Child Intervention Services when he was two years old. He spent most of his childhood with relatives until adolescence, when he was taken out of his community and placed in group care. Peter was the victim of a homicide when he was 18 years old.
