Serious Injury Reviews and Investigations

The Advocate’s responsibilities respecting the review and investigation of serious injuries to children, youth, or young adults is included in Part 4 of the ACYA. While the Manitoba Advocate is currently empowered to investigate serious injuries that come to the attention of the office, what remains yet to be proclaimed is the requirement of service providers to submit to mandatory reporting to the Manitoba Advocate serious injuries of children and youth. Our office has been informed this portion of the legislation will be proclaimed once necessary regulations have been developed.
