Supporting resilience through structural change

This paper describes the contemporary lived experience of First Nations children, youth and families in Canada. It identifies the conditions that support First Nations child and family service agencies to implement community based responses to child maltreatment that honour the strength, wisdom and resiliency embedded in indigenous ways of knowing and being.

Imagine a world where we build on the core strengths of children, their families, and communities, to create dignity, belonging, and justice for all.
