On October 13, 2016, Chinook joined our partners to sign the new Violence Threat Risk Assessment (VTRA) Community Protocol agreement for Southwest Saskatchewan. Partners included Chinook School Division, Cypress Health Region, Saskatchewan Ministry of Social Services, Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice Holy Trinity Catholic School Division and new partner Great Plains College.
"These Protocols promote a common language and understanding of the VTRA model, makes use of a broad range of expertise, and solidifies the importance of the multidisciplinary approach that has proved to be so beneficial. Protocols foster timely collaboration and sharing of information about children/youth who pose a risk for violence towards themselves or others while respecting an individual’s right to privacy to the fullest extent possible. These protocols also promote supportive interventions and preventative plans being put into place."
