Children & Youth

Advocating for our children and youth is a constant challenge. This year we’ve made good progress, and continue to work towards caring for positive change in the development of our greatest resource, our children. One area we’re working towards is the mandatory adoption of Aboriginal Head Start On-Reserve program standards in our communities.

Please review the news and meeting summaries to see more about the work being done in your communities to address caring for children and youth.
