Symposium: Lessons Learned and Moving Forward
On September 12 and 13, 2017, the Commission held a Symposium in downtown Toronto. About 100 people participated, representing young people, parents who were affected by the Motherisk hair testing, child welfare workers, lawyers, academics, scientists, advocates and community workers.
Together, we explored questions that are vital to protecting children, and empowering families and communities.
What can the Commission do for you?
The main function of the Motherisk Commission is to review cases in which the testing may have played a role, and to provide resources to affected persons.
The Review and Resource Centre conducts legal reviews of individual cases where test results from the Motherisk Drug Testing Laboratory (“MDTL”) have been used, including in “high priority” cases.
