Summary of Activities for the Child-centred Family Justice Fund 2003-2009


The family justice services pillar of the Strategy, implemented through the Child-centred Family Justice Fund, enjoyed a successful progression through the six years from 2003 to 2009. The activities of provincial, territorial and non-governmental organizational partners described above constituted new and expanded services that were made possible by the Fund. This funding also supported the continuation of important existing services. These services continued to be funded and developed according to the objectives and seven “Primary Areas of Activity” that were developed in collaboration with the provinces and territories. This progress has helped to make the family justice system more child-centred through the various activities targeted at parents, children, support workers and legal professionals, and has encouraged all of these individuals to put the considerations of children first.
