Delegated Aboriginal agencies have an agreement with the Ministry of Children and Family Development to provide certain child welfare services to Aboriginal communities. The ministry's website has a full list of delegated Aboriginal agencies in BC.
If a child protection worker contacts you or visits your home to ask questions about your family, they might be working for a delegated Aboriginal agency.
Delegated Aboriginal agencies might have the authority to:
- remove your child from your home, and
- place your child in foster care.
