On Thursday, May 11th the Children’s Aid Foundation celebrated its third five14 Talks to inspire change! Hosting five innovative speakers, each with a unique message, the event, generously sponsored by RBC, welcomed 150 individuals — from former youth in care, to politicians, child welfare advocates, agency partners, philanthropists, and donors — to think big about some of the most complex issues facing youth across Canada’s child welfare system.
