62. Where the tribunal orders the compulsory foster care of a child, it shall require the director to designate an institution, to which the child may be entrusted, that operates a hospital centre or a rehabilitation centre or works in conjunction with foster families, and to see that foster care is provided under adequate conditions.
Every institution operating a rehabilitation centre or a hospital centre designated by the director in accordance with this section or paragraph b of section 46 is bound to admit the child contemplated by the order. Such order may be executed by any peace officer.
The institution operating a child and youth protection centre must send a copy of the record of the child to the executive director of the designated institution operating a rehabilitation centre.
If the tribunal orders the compulsory foster care of a child, the director may authorize the child to stay with his father or mother, a person who is important to the child, in particular the grandparents or other members of the extended family, or a foster family for periods of not more than 15 days, provided those periods are part of an intervention plan and respect the interest of the child.
With a view to preparing the child’s return to his family or social environment, the director or a person authorized by the director under section 32 may authorize the child to stay with his father or mother, a person who is important to the child or a foster family for extended periods during the last 60 days of the period of compulsory foster care.
