Welcome to the CFPA

As a non-profit association, we are a membership of Foster and Kinship Parents, dedicated to supporting each other and advocating for the betterment of Children in Care. We not only provide support to Foster and Kinship families, but offer a number of activities for these children and their Foster families, among other initiatives.

We Are Proud To Offer

Membership

Benefits to becoming a member are many! Renewed in January of each year, membership gives you access to all the activities put on by the CFPA, our newsletter, opportunities for donated tickets to many entertainment events, not to mention an amazing support network!

Events

Interested in joining us for an upcoming event? Activities are at no-cost for members, but we need to hear from you if you are coming, so we can accurately plan. Sign up for an upcoming activity here; you’ll be glad you did and we look forward to seeing you!

Resources

The CFPA has many resources available to foster families. Information on advocacy for children, connections for teenagers, child protection, indigenous and metis services and much more.

Mentorship

We know this journey can be exciting, rewarding, exhausting and trying. Mentoring provides readily available peer support, through confidential, trusting discussions and the sharing of ideas to ensure the best outcome for the children in your care.

Services

As an organization, the CFPA provides many services to our member families. These service include telus spark passes for families to use, a free clothing boutique of gently used items, and a free store of well-loved, quality toys. We are also very excited to announce a new partnership with Airdire Project Linus; an organization that creates new, hand-made blankets for children.

Looking For Support?

Please join the CFPA in partnership with the AFKA for our monthly fireside chat on Thursday, January 20th, 2022. We are excited to have engaging and relevant presenters every month and are guaranteed to have an open and candid dialogue. Come ready to ask and share. We look forward to connecting with you! Supplemental training certificates will be provided.
