National Foster Family Week

19 October 2015 

Public Service Announcement 

National Foster Family Week 

National Foster Family Week started October 18. The Department of Family Services wants to thank Nunavut’s foster families for their dedication year-round, and encourages other Nunavummiut to consider fostering a child today. 

To celebrate National Foster Family Week in Nunavut, the department is hosting appreciation nights in communities around the territory. 

All foster parents are invited to join us for Foster Parent Appreciation Night on Saturday, October 24 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Elders’ Qammaq Centre in Iqaluit. To learn about an event in your community, contact your local social services office. 

This is a great opportunity to connect with other foster parents, learn about the rewards of fostering, or apply to our Foster Care Program. 

Refreshments will be served.
