Commitment to Reconciliation
On February 28, 2019, the child welfare mandate was restored to Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag Child and
Family Services to serve all Indigenous families in south central Ontario.
Founded in 1998, Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag Child and Family Services is a multi-service Indigenous
wellbeing agency that provides a stable foundation for children, youth, and families through wraparound services that
are culturally-based and family-focused. Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag Child and Family Services delivers services to
eight First Nation communities, seeking to support families in the way they deserve, with care and authenticity, and
by recognizing and respecting spirit.
The trailblazing work of Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag Child and Family Services is clearing a path for
inspiring, ground-breaking work that helps, heals, and changes lives.
York Region Children's Aid Society is committed to the truth and reconciliation process and journey
to support and promote Indigenous wellbeing. We are honoured to work alongside Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag Child and
Indigenous Identity and Heritage
If you or your child identify as First Nations, Inuit or Métis, or having Indigenous heritage, please feel welcome to

agency providing culturally and spiritually appropriate services to Indigenous communities.
