Niijaansinaanik Child and Family Services is a culture based organization responsive to the holistic needs of all children, youth and families. Niijaansinaanik provides services that reflect values, beliefs, and principles rooted within the Anishinabek culture. We believe the care of children and youth is the responsibility of an entire community. While working in the present, we acknowledge history and its impacts on our people in relations to outside influences, and strive to build a strong, healthy future for all children, youth, families and communities.
Niijaansinaanik Child and Family Services (NCFS) became a designated Child Welfare Agency on April 1, 2021. This designation is historic as it is a necessary step in reclaiming jurisdiction over child welfare services for the First Nations we currently service. Since 2019, NCFS has provided 24/7 child and family services for the First Nations served. The Agency was incorporated as a non-profit organization of the province of Ontario in November 2018.
