Welcome! iich'uyuwul!

Kw'umut Lelum Child and Family Services (Kw'umut Lelum) is an Aboriginal Society dedicated to the well-being of all our children in our nine member Nations. Our mission is to work towards children's right to live with dignity, the integrity of the family, the parents right to care for their children, within the standards of the community.

REPORTING CONCERNS

Under the Child and Family Services Act, anyone who believes a child may be in need of protection is required to report their concerns to a child welfare agency. Community members have a duty to report their concerns in order to help protect children. The Agency does not disclose the identity of the person who provides information. The Agency is required to direct your concerns and also to report back to you the outcome of their investigation.

BECOME A CAREGIVER

 

Our team is always seeking individuals who are interested in becoming caregivers. We believe that it is important for our Aboriginal children to stay within their communities and to preserve their identities. Whenever possible, Kw'umut Lelum will place children in care with Aboriginal caregivers within their community, although we do accept applications from non-Aboriginal individuals. Learn more...
