Children's Aid Foundation of Canada

Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada is our country’s leading charity dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth who have experienced or live at risk of abuse, neglect and abandonment. Through circumstances beyond their control and no fault of their own, nearly 67,000 young people lack almost everything most kids take for granted – things like a safe, stable home, someone to nurture their growth, and a sense of unconditional love. Your support will help children and youth in our community and across Canada overcome past traumas, build stability and create a vision for themselves of a successful future.

Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada supports and delivers a broad range of high-impact programs and services that directly serve vulnerable young people involved in the child welfare system across the country. Last year, 24,000 children and youth received support through:

  • Prevention programs that strengthen families and prevent kids from entering care;
  • Healing and recovery support, including physical and mental health care not covered by public funding;
  • Enrichment programs like camps, sports, and the arts that build confidence and positive self-identity;
  • Education supports, like tutoring and scholarships that elevate young people above their circumstances.

To expand our reach and help even more vulnerable young people from coast to coast, we have recently launched Stand Up for Kids. This national campaign for child welfare is bringing together caring Canadians dedicated to creating positive change for children and youth who have experienced abuse, neglect and abandonment by transforming their prospects for a brighter future.
