Vision and Mission

Children’s Aid Foundation

Strength to change lives.


A future where the children and youth we serve have the strength and resilience to create a lifetime of their own unstoppable successes.


The Children’s Aid Foundation is Canada’s leading charity dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth in the child welfare system.
As an ally and an advocate:
  • We remove barriers that limit the potential of children who have experienced or are at risk of experiencing abuse, neglect and abandonment
  • We provide access to the opportunities these children need to become contributing members of society who enjoy healthy relationships of their own
