Children's Aid Society of Algoma
Guiding Principles
  • The safety and well being of children is paramount.
  • The family is the preferred environment for children.
  • Every child has the right to family, ideally to their family of origin.
  • Every child has a right to maintain his/her identity with his/her family of origin.
  • If a child cannot live with their family of origin, the foster family must respect and support the importance of the family of origin.
  • Foster Care does not replace the child’s primary family, but adds to it: “Families helping Families”
  • The Children’s Aid Society of Algoma maintains responsibility for decision making in partnership with the Child Protection Worker, foster parents, the primary family and, where possible, the children to make decisions about the child’s plan of care.
