Resource care providers receive a variety of supports to help them nurture and care for children and youth who live in their home.

Resource care providers are assigned a Resource Worker who works with them to develop a personalized plan for your ongoing learning, training, and support. We recognize the importance and benefits of ongoing training, and offer regular workshops and courses to enhance the knowledge and expand child-related skills for foster caregivers.

  • Resource care providers have access to peer support through the Foster Parent Association which helps to connect them with other foster parents.
  • The Foster Parent Association meets regularly and provides support and a network of Resource care providers with mutual interests.
  • Resource care providers receive a daily, non-taxable reimbursement for children and youth living in their home to cover the cost of food, shelter, and other living expenses. As well there are clothing and recreational allowances that vary according to the age of the child/youth.
  • Health and dental coverage for children and youth is provided by the Children’s Aid Society.
