The First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada (Caring Society) is the national voice for the safety and wellbeing of First Nations children and their families.
Using a reconciliation framework that addresses contemporary hardships for First Nations families in ways that uplift all Canadians, the award-winning Caring Society undertakes research and education initiatives, and public engagement campaigns that champion culturally based equity for First Nations children.
- Love and respect for our children, young people, families, communities and nations.
- Respect for the people who work with First Nations children, young people, families, communities, and nations.
- The sharing of our individual and collective resources (knowledge, wealth, ideas, etc.) to nurture and care for the First Nations children in Canada.
- Respecting the value of diverse First Nations teachings and practices for today’s First Nations children, young people and families.
The Caring Society’s pioneering work for reconciliation in child welfare, health and education is reflected in the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), released in June 2015.
In partnership with caring and compassionate children, youth, educators, researchers and other allied individuals and organizations, the Caring Society is working to make sure the landscape in Canada is only one of honour and possibility for First Nations children.
