Every Child Matters: Strengthening Foster Families in Canada
In 2010, the Child Welfare League of Canada (CWLC) embarked on a journey to explore the world of the foster parent in Canada now, and where we need to be in the future. In partnership with the Canadian Foster Family Association (CFFA), we would like to invite you to complete a survey on your experiences as a foster parent. This Canada-wide research survey will help identify:
- Common foster parent retention practices;
- Effective retention practices; and
- Retention practices requiring improvement.
Research outcomes will then be given back to provincial and territorial governments and stakeholders near the end of 2012. This survey has been funded by Human Resources Skills and Development Canada and developed by researchers at the University of Western Ontario and the University of Ottawa. Your responses will only be shared with the researchers, and are completely anonymous.
If you have experience as a foster parent in Canada and would like to fill out the survey please click on the name of your province or territory below. The survey will open in a separate window in a fillable pdf form and should take you 20-30 minutes to complete.
