What We Are About

  1. How do I become a foster parent?
    Contact a Kinship worker and request a kinship package.

  2. Do I need to be Treaty to become a foster parent?
    This is a myth, you do not have to be treaty or live on reserve to become a kinship/foster parent.

  3. When children are apprehended, where do they go?
    Children are placed into an emergency kinship homes.

  4. If someone reports me, what happens?
    An assessor will go out and investigate the home, he/she will complete and assessment and determine whether the child(ren) are safe and how we can help the family.

  5. Do you do Child & Youth Information Module (CYIM) checks?
    If you are over 18 years old and live on reserve, we can provide a CYIM check.
