Welcome to the site of the Special Commission on the Rights of the Child and Youth Protection presided by Ms. Régine Laurent: A Willingness to Act for Our Children.

The death of a seven-year-old girl in Granby on April 30, 2019 shocked the people of Québec and raised concerns about the youth protection system and support for families in vulnerable situations.

In response to this tragedy, the Québec government has committed to embarking on an examination not only of youth protection services but also the law that governs them, as well as the role of the courts, social services and other actors involved.

On May 30, 2019, it entrusted this mandate to a special commission presided by Ms. Régine Laurent. This site allows anyone to consult all information pertaining to the Commission, and also to submit their story to the attention of the commissioners.

The Commission must submit its report and recommendations to the government by April 30, 2021.

On this site you will find complete information on the Commission. It will be posted as the work progresses (schedule of sessions, groups and persons heard, documents filed, recording of public hearings, etc.).

For information on the Commission, write to info@csdepj.gouv.qc.ca.
