dc.description.abstractThis paper will focus on the contributing factors that cause such high numbers of First Nations children on-reserve to go into child welfare care. It will also focus on recommendations for improving First Nation child and family services, programing and funding for families living on-reserve that have come out of literature reviews and research projects within the last twenty years. A synthesis and analysis of these works will result in some concluding recommendations to address the critical issues of policy development/reform, program governance and delivery and, funding model and formula improvements, all with the goal of improving or eliminating the contributing factors to the high incidence of First Nations children on-reserve in care. These recommendations will include short-term recommendations to address the devastatingly high incidence of First Nation child suicide rates, and the ever-growing number of First Nations children in care where there is often little to no success of reintegration with their families and communities. Although each First Nation community has a unique identity, made up of traditions and cultural values and norms, this paper will examine the First Nations child welfare crisis from a national perspective in light of the high rates of First Nations children in care across the country. The contributing factors and reforms considered therefore will be applicable for a nation-wide solution.en_US
