Manitoba has one of the highest rates of children taken into care of child welfare services in the world, and also one of the highest youth incarceration rates in Canada. Policy-makers recognize there is overlap between these systems. This article aims to investigate some of those reasons, and also what types of supports are needed for practitioners and parents to decrease this rate.
