BECOME A MEMBER
Our national network of “brothers and sisters from care” spans generations, ethnicity, education, and socioeconomic status – bringing us all together through our shared culture of being from care.
Our individual members come from many walks of life, including youth in care, alumnae from care, foster parents, university professors, academic researchers, social workers, policy makers, etc. Our organizational supporters are national and provincial voluntary sector organizations, government organizations, academic institutions, and regional or local service delivery agencies.
Only those members from care between the ages of 14-29 have voting privileges, and their membership fees will always be waived if requested.
Youth in Care Canada does not receive operational funding from the federal government, or any provincial government, corporations or political parties. To preserve our complete independence, much of our operational revenue comes from generous individuals like you. Your membership contribution directly offsets the costs associated with providing free membership to youth in care who are 18 years and under and local/provincial youth in care networks.
