Founded in 1998, the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada (the Caring Society) is a national non-profit organization that provides research, policy, professional development and networking to support First Nations child and family service agencies in caring for First Nations children, youth and families.1
The Caring Society works to ensure the safety and well-being of First Nations children and their families through education initiatives, public policy campaigns and providing quality resources to support communities. Using a reconciliation framework that addresses contemporary hardships for Indigenous families in ways that uplift all Canadians, the Caring Society champions culturally-based equity for First Nations children and their families so that they can grow up safely at home, get a good education, and be healthy and proud of who they are. The Caring Society proudly works with partners in Canada and around the world to promote the rights of Indigenous children.1
