MCDescollines Avocate focuses part of her practice on the representation of children and
youth, biological parents, grandparents, and other family members in Child Protection cases.
The Ministry of Health and Social Services of Quebec, through its delegates, Youth
protection Services, has considerable ability to intervene in the lives of families through
the framework of the Youth protection Act. The Youth Protection Act oversees the quality
and delivery of child protection services. Such intervention may include the forced removal
of children from the care of their parents, and placement of these apprehended children
within the foster care system.
