Foster families are needed across the Island

There is a need for foster families across the province to provide safe and nurturing homes to children up to age 18. Being a foster parent can be life changing for parents, children and youth.

Islanders who are interested can apply to provide support for children as a:

  • full time foster parent;
  • part time foster parent;
  • respite foster parent (providing care to children on a short term or emergency basis).
Learn more about fostering opportunities at Be a Foster Parent or register to attend an information session.
