This joint report is a collaborative initiative undertaken by the Representative for Children and Youth and the Ministry of Children and Family Development. The report was initiated after the tragic death of a British Columbia youth in care in September 2015 who was placed in a hotel. The purpose of the report is to gain a better understanding of the practice of placing children and youth in hotels with the goal of improving the child- and youth-serving system and eliminating hotel placements.
