The pace of progress

The ministry of children and family development's recent service plan has once again demonstrated just how little progress has been made on the government's plan to enhance "the capacity of the Aboriginal community to deliver child and family development services." Five years ago, the government promised that, by fiscal 2005/06, 50 percent of the aboriginal children in care served by delegated aboriginal agencies. But, according to the latest plan, just 30.4 percent of aboriginal children in care are served by those agencies. The following is a complete list of those targets since 2003.
