Our Values

The Voices of Children and Youth
Putting the needs and voice of each child and youth at the centre of all planning by including them in decisions that affect them.

Answering to the children, youth and families we serve, to the community and to governments, for our decisions, actions and outcomes.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Promoting inclusion and equity in all that we do by eliminating systemic racism and discrimination, and addressing over-representation of marginalized and racialized populations in child welfare.

Moving forward in the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation, we are committed to honesty, transparency and consultation with Indigenous communities while fostering an environment of reconciliation.
