Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
14
May 2003
Whereas: 
  1. The CCR passed a resolution to endorse the "Best Practice" Statement developed by the Focal Point on Separated Children (Res. 19, Nov. 2002);
  2. There has yet to be a national policy developed on separated children;
  3. There is no consistent definition of the term "separated children";
  4. Practices differ widely across the country;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR write to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration requesting the implementation of a national policy that is consistent with the Best Practices statement, and that the policy be developed in consultation with the CCR, NGOs and the UNHCR.
