Minister Lionel Carmant on investment in Quebec's youth protection services

Daybreak Montreal

The Quebec government is investing $47 million in the province's youth protection services — the DPJ. The money will be used to hire around 400 new social workers, and reduce wait time for evaluations. This comes amidst a sweeping review of youth protection services, prompted by the death of a seven-year-old girl in Granby in April. We speak with Lionel Carmant, the Quebec minister responsible for youth protection. He is the deputy minister for health and social services.
