Saskatchewan Incidence Study

The Saskatchewan Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect (SIS) is designed to collect information about the children and families who are investigated by child welfare services on a periodic basis, using a standardized set of definitions, from every jurisdiction in Saskatchewan. There has been one cycle of the study, conducted in 2008.

The SIS-2008 was conducted through a partnership among the federal (Public Health Agency of Canada) and provincial governments, child welfare service providers including provincial level First Nations child welfare organizations, university-based researchers of multiple disciplines, and child advocates.

NOTE: These are findings that reflect the Saskatchewan child welfare system. Please note also that publications related to the SIS are often only available in English.
