Working at Native Child & Family Services of Toronto (NCFST)

Native Child and Family Services of Toronto strives to provide a life of quality, well- being, caring and healing for our children and families in the Toronto Native Community.  We do this by creating a service model that is culture based and respects the values of Native people, the extended family and the right to self-determination.

Our work culture stems from the Teachings of the Seven Grandfathers which is a set of teachings on human conduct towards others and they are, humility, bravery, honesty, wisdom, truth, respect and love. This is the premise by which we work with each other and how we service our families.

At Native Child & Family Services of Toronto, our greatest strength is in our people.  We recognize this, and we are committed to our strategic goal of staff engagement through creating a work environment based on equity and respect, and working together in caring, cross-functional teams and where all staff have a voice.

We value respect, leadership, innovation, collaboration, relationships, equity and safety – and are guided by these values in everything we do.
Join a team of dedicated staff who believe in what they do. We are committed to staffing a workforce representative of the Aboriginal population we serve.  While encourage Aboriginal candidates to apply, we hire from all ethnic backgrounds.
