Foster Care Council of Canada

The Foster Care Council of Canada is an organization started by John Dunn in 2002. The mandate of the Foster Care Council is to assist individuals whose lives have been adversely affected by child welfare services, including adoption. The mission of the Foster Care Council is to improve the lives of children who live in foster care and have experienced difficulty as a result. The Council offers these individuals a strong unified voice through advocacy efforts exercised through stakeholder input on relevant legislation, public education forums, and support for those individuals who have been adversely affected by child welfare services.

The goals of the Foster Care Council are focused on four key points:

• To give those adversely affected by child welfare services a strong and united voice through the publication of its newsletter, The Crown Ward;
• To notify child welfare stakeholders of important legislative or government activity and engage their involvement;
• To teach the public about important child welfare matters through public education campaigns; and,
• To provide support to those who have been adversely affected by child welfare services through support groups and community level advocacy.

The Council is not a registered charity but accountability is provided through a Donation Accountability Table located on the Council’s website.
