Become a foster or
adoptive parent today.
You must live in the NWT to foster or adopt a child from the NWT.
Some of our children need a temporary place to stay while a reunification plan is put in place. We need more foster homes with caring and loving adults to keep our children safe and support their development.
When reunification is not a possibility, children in the NWT need a permanent home with consistent care from adults who will be a part of their lives forever.
There are amazing children in the NWT whose circumstances have left them searching for a new home.
With additional foster and adoptive parents in the NWT, our children have the chance to find a perfect placement when they need one.
Children need to stay connected to community, culture, and language.
