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.

Networks provide a range of services and supports that focus on strengthening parenting and caregiving knowledge, social support, coping and problem-solving skills, access to community supports and resources, improving child and youth development, building resiliency and fostering well-being. Through a ‘hub and spoke’ model of service delivery, Networks (hubs) will coordinate the prevention and early intervention services in all geographic areas and in various cultural communities across the province – either directly or through collaborative partnerships with qualified service agencies or providers (spokes).
