The Commitment

ANCR works within a jointly coordinated child and family services system with four distinct mandates (First Nations North, First Nations South, Métis and non-Aboriginal); that is community based; and reflects and incorporates the cultures of non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal peoples.

Our Commitment to Children and Families

Families have responsibility in society to ensure the well-being of their children.

Each family is unique and has the right to services:

  • That respect their individual needs, their cultural and linguistic heritage.
  • That fosters their participation in decisions, their independence and sustainability.

Any intervention in the affairs of a family should:

  • Ensure that the children in the family are safe.
  • Be as non-intrusive as possible.
  • Ensure that no child is at risk because of gaps between programs and services of agencies.
  • Be preventative, supportive, consistent and respectful.
  • Support children to stay with their own family systems whenever possible.

Ensuring the safety, security and well-being of children and their best interests are fundamental responsibilities of society.
