The Chiefs of Ontario (COO) is undertaking a special study to provide options on a new First Nation’s child well-being approach that is child centered, community-directed and supports better outcomes by focusing on prevention services. The project has been designed to align with Canada and Ontario’s commitment to achieving reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and continue to support and enhance First Nation culture, control, laws, jurisdiction and autonomy.
