Delegated Child & Family Services

Providing voluntary care services on-reserve, recruit and approve caregivers and care providers, and provide guardianship for children in continuing care.


About the Program

CSFS is a delegated agency, which means we have authority from the Provincial Director of Child Protection to be responsible for parts of the Child, Family & Community Services Act. Learn more about delegated agencies


Guardianship Services & Post Majority Services

The guardianship program is designated to act as the legal guardian for children and youth between the ages of 0 – 19 years of age who are in the legal custody of the Director under the Child Family & Community Services Act.

Guardianship Services also prepares youth that are transitioning into adulthood for post-majority services. Post-majority services provide support and assistance for young adults between the ages of 19 – 27 years of age.

Family support services such as respite, voluntary care agreements, special needs agreements, youth agreements, are provided directly to clients through self-referrals or when a request is made by MCFD or another delegated Indigenous agency; however, the client must be willing to engage in the service as per our C3 delegation. 


Foster Parent/ Resource Services

The Foster Parent program, or Resource Team, directly works with care providers and staffed homes to ensure that Indigenous children and youth in care get adequate care that they need to thrive

The resource team is primarily responsible for recruiting, developing, and maintaining a range of care homes in which to place children and youth in care. Types of homes include Family Care Homes, Safe Homes, Relatives of Children in Care, and Specialized Resources such as group homes and treatment homes.


Who We Serve

The Guardianship program provides delegated social workers to work with children who are in care, and are from the 11 communities we serve. We also work with foster parents and group home staff through contracts so they can provide day-to-day guardianship to children in care.
