Designated Representative Training offers participants an opportunity to review the role of the Designated Representative as described in the Child and Family Community Services Act (CFCSA) and the Child and Family Community Services Regulations. The relevant sections of the legislation, rules and regulations will be examined. The Designated Representative will consider how their function may be utilized to promote the safety and well-being of children and to ensure that the rights of children to culture and community are respected and upheld by the court.

This two day training course delivers curriculum that is structured to reflect the roles of the Designated Representative and apply knowledge gained to support the rights of the children.

Training Outcomes:

  • Introduction to the CFCSA
  • Roles & Responsibilities of the Designated Representative
  • Court Notices
  • Applying the CFCSA to court proceedings
  • Definitions of Abuse and Neglect
  • New Federal legislation, C-92: An Act Respecting First Nations, Inuit and Métis children, youth and families
  • Support Services and Out of Care Options

*Note on updated training fees:
IPS is currently delivering training exclusively online, unless privately negotiated otherwise. As a result we have had to increase our per participant training fees in order to cover additional costs to IPS associated with online training delivery. We acknowledge this is a difficult time financially for everyone and appreciate your understanding that we have had to make these changes to cover our operational costs. As always, we will continue to assess individual circumstances in order to try to keep training accessible to those who need it.

This training is provided to the public and is also offered privately, to interested groups of 10 or more participants.
