Your impact by the numbers.

Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada is our country’s leading charity dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth in the child welfare system. We raise and grant funds and deliver a wide range of high-impact programs and services to provide access to the opportunities these children need to reach their potential against all odds. Last year, through the support of our generous donors, we helped to transform the lives of over 46,500 children and youth and 12,300 families.

We believe all children have the right to become healthy, contributing members of society.

Strengthening families

We collaborated with 60 partners to provide support to 36,156 children and families. Through programs and resources focused on preventing children and youth from entering and growing up in care, they are being helped to overcome barriers like poverty, mental health challenges, domestic violence, and substance abuse that put them at risk.

4,301 children and youth supported through prevention programs that support families, strengthen communities, and prevent kids from entering care.

We collaborated with 43 partners to reach 11,043 children and youth with enrichment and education opportunities such as sports, tutoring and other educational supports, art lessons, camp, and more to help build confidence and motivation, connect with other young people, explore interests, and achieve academic success.

Youth in Transition

We collaborated with 60 agency partners to provide 11,671 youth with access to the resources and supports necessary to help reduce barriers to achieving their education and employment goals.
