Relevant Child Welfare Resources
The CECW carries out and funds original research, gathers and analyzes child welfare information, and supports the development of research capacity through training and consultation. They host a Researcher’s Database, a newsletter, research report’s and information sheets, including information on child welfare in BC.
The BC Child & Youth Health Research Network (CYHRNet) supports development of a vigorous, more integrated and collaborative research environment for BC's child and youth health researchers, to raise research to a new level of innovation and excellence, and strengthen researchers' capacity to compete for national and international funding.
The purpose of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada is to promote the well being of all First Nations children, youth, families and communities, with a particular focus on the prevention of, and response to, child maltreatment.
The Winnipeg-based First Nations Research Site (FNRS) is a partnership initiative of the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada and the Centre of Excellence for Child Welfare.
Two key purposes of the First Nations Research Site are to demonstrate effective methodologies for carrying out First Nations research and to build capacity and a research culture within First Nations child welfare agencies and communities that are culturally relevant and respectful of OCAP principles.
A free online accessible journal on innovation and best practices in Aboriginal child welfare administration, research, policy and practice
The First Peoples Child & Family Review is a new, online journal, published jointly by the First Nations Research Site, Centre of Excellence for Child Welfare, and the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada. This e-journal focuses primarily on First Nations and Aboriginal child welfare practices, policies, and research. It is a journal that privileges the "voice and perspectives" of First Nations and Aboriginal child welfare scholars, researchers, practitioners, trainers, students, volunteers and community developers. The journal was developed by the First Nations Research Site, Centre of Excellence for Child Welfare and First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada, Inc. and will be published twice a year. The inaugural issue was published in the summer of 2004.
The purpose of the First Peoples Child & Family Review is to "reach beyond the walls of academia" to promote child welfare research, practice, policy and education from an First Nations/Aboriginal perspective and to advance innovative approaches within the field of First Nations and Aboriginal child welfare. Contributions are particularly encouraged from First Nation and Aboriginal community-based practitioners whose work may involve innovative, preventative, traditional and healing approaches to delivery of child welfare programs and services in the First Nation and Aboriginal communities in general.
