64. Where a period of compulsory foster care terminates during a school year, the institution operating a rehabilitation centre must continue to provide the child with foster care until the end of the school year if the child, being 14 years of age or over, consents to it; when the child is less than 14 years of age, foster care shall continue with the consent of the parents and the director.
Where a period of compulsory foster care ends during a school year, the foster family may continue to provide foster care to the child on the same conditions.
An order for foster care ceases to have effect when the person to which it applies reaches the age of 18 years. However, foster care may continue in accordance with the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2) or the Act respecting health services and social services for Cree and Inuit Native persons (chapter S-5), if the person consents to it.
An institution must continue to provide foster care to a person having reached the age of 18 years if the person consents to it and if the person’s condition does not allow his return to or reinsertion in his home environment. Foster care shall continue until the person’s admission to another institution or any of its intermediate resources or to a family-type resource where he will receive the services required by his condition is assured.
