Highlights from the Phoenix Sinclair inquiry report

WINNIPEG - Some of the 62 recommendations from Commissioner Ted Hughes's final report into the death of Phoenix Sinclair:

— Social workers should be responsible for about 20 cases. Testimony at the inquiry heard some workers were responsible for twice that many.

— All social workers should have a degree in social work or equivalent.

— Anyone who practices social work should be registered by the Manitoba College of Social Workers.

— Manitoba must push to put the disproportionate number of aboriginal kids in care on the national agenda.

— Social workers should be properly trained on the inter-generational impact of residential schools.

— Child-welfare agencies must assess — through face-to-face contact — the well-being of a child when a family comes to their attention and look at immediate and long-term risks.

— The goal of child welfare should be to keep as many children safe at home as possible.

— Social workers, their agencies and community organizations should do a better job of communicating with each other on active files.
