CWLC

Established in 1994, the Child Welfare League of Canada (CWLC) is a national, membership-based charitable organization dedicated to promoting the safety and well-being of young people and their families, especially those who are vulnerable and marginalized. The CWLC advocates for and promotes legislation, policy, research, programs, and services that address the underlying causes of precarity and trauma, and convenes leaders, organizations, researchers, governments, and people with lived experience to learn and improve our practices. The CWLC aspires for all children to thrive, to know that they are loved, and to have a sense of belonging. It wants to see more children grow up with their family, their kin and their community, and be connected to their cultural heritage and language, and wants children who are placed in care to achieve better outcomes in health and well-being, education, housing, and employment. Finally, the CWLC envisions a nation where everyone can reach their full potential.
