On this episode of Info Matters, Commissioner Patricia Kosseim and Child Welfare PAC Founder Jane Kovarikova discuss "giving foster kids a fair shot in life" by respecting their privacy as youth in and from care.

Jane discusses the importance of sealing the records of youth in care when they are fully transitioned out of the care of a Children’s Aid Society to combat privacy concerns. This prevents records being used against a youth from care in their future.

Through sharing her experience as the first former youth in care to be Board Chair of Simcoe-Muskoka Connexions, Jane teaches us that when we listen, employ, and take action alongside youth in and from care, we can make a positive change in the Child Welfare Sector.
