Regulations relating to warrants, court ordered assessments, and methods and procedures for alternative dispute resolution under the Child, Youth and Family Services Act, 2017.

Regulation Number(s):
N/A
Bill or Act:
Child, Youth and Family Services Act, 2017
Summary of Proposal:
Warrants under Part V of the CYFSA:

Provisions in Regulation 70 under the CFSA that relate to obtaining a warrant to enter premises or obtain a record are proposed to be remade in a regulation under the CYFSA. Minor changes are proposed to these regulatory provisions to replace references to the CFSA with references to the corresponding provisions in the CYFSA.

Court Ordered Assessments:

The majority of provisions relating to court ordered assessments in O. Reg 25/07 under the CFSA are proposed to be remade in a regulation under the CYFSA with no substantive changes (e.g. replacing references to the CFSA with references to the corresponding provisions in the CYFSA).

One provision relating to criteria for ordering an assessment (section 2 of O. Reg 25/07 under the CFSA) is not in regulation as that provision was imported into the CYFSA as subsection 95(2).

Alternative Dispute Resolution:

All provisions relating to methods and procedures for alternative dispute resolution (ADR) presently contained in O. Reg 496/06 under the CFSA are to be remade as a regulation under the CYFSA with no substantive changes (e.g. updating references to provisions in the CFSA with references to the corresponding provisions in the CYFSA) in order to maintain the current framework for child protection ADR.

Reference Regulations:
• Regulation 70 under the CFSA
• O. Reg 25/07 under the CFSA
• O. Reg 496/06 under the CFSA
