Child & Family Development

Ensuring that Aboriginal communities have access to a full range of effective services that reflect and support culture and tradition is a key aspect of improving outcomes for Aboriginal children and youth.

In recent years, the Province – working in partnership with Aboriginal communities – has taken many important steps to enhance, improve and deliver programs and services in a more culturally appropriate manner.

Information on these support services:

Delegated Child & Family Services

Delegation agreements are negotiated between the Province and Aboriginal communities to manage their own child and family services through developing their capacity to carry out these responsibilities.
