The Strength of Families and Connection Project Recommended ResourcesThe Strength of Families and Connection project aims to strengthen the capacity of child welfare workers, service providers and alternative caregivers to effectively prevent and respond to the needs of children and families in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the support of the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Child Welfare League of Canada has partnered with the Canadian Consortium on Child and Youth Trauma and the Canadian Foster Family Association to promote trauma-informed and equity focused responses to child maltreatment that encourage social inclusion, and connections to family, community and culture, mental health and child safety.
