Separate licensing regulations for different types of agencies

To Whom It May Concern,

The proposed changes to the child-placeing agency standards don't address the signficant differences between the types of agencies that are all licensed by the same regulations.

A foster care agency a domestic placement agency and an international placement agency conduct very different work and shouldn't be subjected to the same licensing standards.
