October Foster Family Week

Celebrating Foster Families in Ontario Oct. 17 - 21
Posted on 10/07/2022

Ontario foster families play a critical role in their communities. Although Children’s Aid Societies work hard, in partnership with families, to keep children and youth in their homes, this is not always possible. When children cannot remain with their primary caregivers and kin placements are not available, foster families provide children and youth with a safe family setting during a difficult and confusing time.

During National Foster Family Appreciation Week, Ontario’s child welfare sector recognizes the invaluable contributions of foster families across the province. Foster caregivers form part of the team that supports young people in care, not only by providing a stable and caring home, but also by facilitating pathways to lifelong connections with family and community. They provide essential care and support to the children and youth in their homes, and we are grateful for their unwavering dedication.
