Decolonizing Child Welfare Webinar-Learning Series

Decolonizing Child Welfare Webinar Learning Series – Oct 29 @ 2 PM

Please join us as we launch the first Child Welfare Webinar Learning Series.

This launch will consist of an overview of the child welfare system and the role of Native Child and Family Services of Toronto. We will look at the child welfare systems in the historical injustices against Indigenous children and families and the impact of the resulting intergenerational trauma.

The Webinar will explain the history of NCFST in relation to its provincial child welfare mandate, provide an overview of the core interventions and services that are offered from referral to case closure and tell the story of our efforts to provide prevention and early intervention to mitigate the harms caused by colonial child welfare services.

Webinars in this Learning Series will be recorded and posted on the NCFST website as the series evolves to be available to the community and the families we serve.

June 2021

Virtual & Day Camp Registration is open for youth 6-16 years of age.

The deadline to apply for both camps is JUNE 15, 2021

VIRTUAL CAMP (6-16 years)

Virtual Camp will be offered to 3 age groups: 6-9, 10-12, and 13-16

DAY CAMP (6-12 years)

Day camp programs will be offered on the land in alignment with the Government of Ontario, Toronto Public Health, and Ontario Camps Association safety provisions. A guide will be provided to families in their welcome package with further details.

Campers will be placed within small groups between the age of 6-12.

We will offer a SCARBOROUGH (Joseph Brant PS*) and DOWNTOWN (Queen Alexandra*) location.

*Permits are pending for both locations.


  • Campers are only to apply for one opportunity VIRTUAL OR DAY CAMP (as they run at the same time).
  • Applications must be completed by Camper’s Legal Parent/Guardian.  For children who are in the care of NCFST, this means the NCFST Worker must complete the application/consent for the child (not the Resource Home).
  • An application must be completed for each Camper. The deadline to apply for both camps is JUNE 15, 2021
  • Applications submitted may not be all accepted due to numbers, selection criteria. Parent/Guardian/Resource will be notified of application status via email by June 18.

Submit a camper application for VIRTUAL CAMP (ages 6-16)

We are still in the process with solidifying our plans for Grundy Lake Overnight Camp, which due to COVID19 we hope to offer as a Family Camp this year.  By offering small, family-cohort camps, we can ensure camper safety and compliance to all Ministry directives.

We will be asking that families submit an expression of interest (starting June 15) for this year’s very limited-space Family Camp (should we be able to offer).  The link will be posted June 15th for families to add their name to the list.  Stay tuned!
