Children placed in foster care are aged 0 to 17 years old and have generally had difficult experiences in their family environment (neglect, rejection, physical or sexual violence). They may also have behavioural issues, emotional or social issues, or developmental delays.
They come from many different ethnocultural and religious backgrounds. In order to meet their needs, we are committed to placing children with families of similar ethnocultural and religious backgrounds to the extent possible.
Note: Our children and their families are English-speaking and receive services in English under the Youth Protection Act or the Act Respecting Health Services and Social Services.
