Children’s Aid Foundation


Assisting Youth

The Children’s Aid Foundation is Canada’s leading national charity dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth in the child welfare system. We do this by fundraising to provide education support, life-skills training, health and well-being programs and assistance to kids as they transition out of care. Donations support tens of thousands of young people every year.


Protecting Youth

Through circumstances entirely beyond their control and no fault of their own, children and youth in need of protection lack almost everything that most kids take for granted -  like a safe, stable home and someone to nurture their growth. In spite of that, or maybe because of it, they have resilience and determination beyond their years.

Stabilizing Youth

Our years of experience have shown that when we all work together, we can bring stability to these kids so they can re-launch their lives and develop into their own unrealized potential. All children have the right to grow, thrive and lead happy, healthy productive lives. The children we serve need our help to get there.

Serving since 1979

The Children’s Aid Foundation is Canada’s only national charity with the capacity to strategically raise, fund and deliver high-impact programs and services for uniquely vulnerable kids all across our country. Unlike child welfare agencies such as the Children’s Aid Society, we receive no government funding – the programs we make possible are entirely the result of the generosity of corporate, foundation and individual donors. Together, we have been helping children reach their potential against all odds since 1979.

Join us today!

Join us and help some of the most vulnerable kids in Canada overcome traumas of the past and rebuild stability, self-worth and a sense of life’s possibilities.
