The Other Side of the Door

OACAS released The Other Side of the Door: A Practice Guide for Child Welfare Professionals in Working with First Nation, Inuit and Métis Peoples. The practice guide was developed by Kenn Richard, Executive Director, Native Child and Family Services of Toronto, to strengthen understanding of the history of colonization within child welfare, the culture and strengths of First Nation, Inuit, and Métis families and communities, and prepare all child welfare professionals to fulfill the unique obligations under the Child, Youth and Family Services Act with respect to providing services to Indigenous families.
