National Foster Family Week

National Foster Family Week is from October 16 to 22, 2016. 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 events in communities across the territory. To learn about an event in your community, contact your local children and family services office.

In Iqaluit, foster parents are invited to a foster parent appreciation event on Saturday, October 22, from 3 to 5 p.m., at the Anglican parish hall.

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

Refreshments will be served.
