Drug Endangered Children Act

Drug activity is increasing throughout our province and innocent children are being found in places where drugs are being sold or produced, such as methamphetamine labs and indoor marijuana grow operations.

On November 1, 2006, Alberta became the first jurisdiction in Canada to adddress this emerging social issue through the Drug-endangered Children Act. This legislation makes it clear that children exposed to an adult's involvement in serious drug activity, such as manufacturing and trafficking, are victims of abuse and need protection.
