This is the ninth consecutive year that British Columbia is marking Child and Youth in Care Week, a time to honour young people living in the care of the government. As it is the first such occasion for me as your Representative, I want to pass on this important message directly to the more than 6,000 of you in various forms of care:
We greatly value your voice, your ideas and your hopes and dreams. We want to hear from you about your successes, your challenges and the things you think would make B.C.’s care system better for you and other young people like you. We are your Office, and we are here to help.
