As has been identified previously, Social Services’ Child and Family Services Division does not have a current stable information management system. The data represents a snapshot of data taken at December 31st each year. The data, while reliable, represents the gathering of information from two internal sources within the Ministry, as well as manual counting in some instances. As such, the data is the best available at this time and represents a viable picture of the trends in the data relating to children in care.
