Thank you for opening your home to foster a child or youth!

Becoming a foster parent is a big decision. You are making a real difference in the life of a child and contributing to your community. There are currently more than 200 foster families in Nunavut and there continues to be demand.

These resources are designed to support you in your foster parenting role:

  • Foster Family Manual (PDF)
  • Parenting Information, Resources and Activities
  • Books in Your Community in Nunavut Locations
