Alberta Government Children in Care
Children’s Services aims to ensure that children and youth in care live in safe, supportive and, whenever possible, culturally relevant placements. During their time in care, children are provided with very similar services, supports, supervision and guidance that are typical for children in Alberta. Whether through their caseworker, caregiver or community programs, and based on their age and specific needs, children in care can receive:
- Support to develop and maintain relationships with friends, family and mentors (i.e. Big Brothers, Big Sisters)
- Child care (as needed by working caregivers)
- Cultural plan (to stay connected with their home community and/or culture)
- Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) in their name and annual contributions while in care
