131.8. Despite section 72.5, as soon as an Indigenous child must be removed from his family environment to be entrusted to an alternative living environment, the director must inform the person responsible for youth protection services in the community of the child’s situation. In the absence of such a person, the director shall inform the person who assumes a role in matters of child and family services within the community. The director shall then solicit the cooperation of the person informed of the child’s situation in order to foster the cultural continuity of that child and, as far as possible, ensure that the child is entrusted to an alternative living environment in accordance with section 131.5.
