(TORONTO, November 10, 2017) On Saturday, November 11th, Regional Chief Isadore Day will lay a wreath at Queen’s Park in memory of all First Nation veterans who fought in the World Wars, and in numerous other conflicts from Korea to Afghanistan.

Purpose of the Request for Proposal

The Chiefs of Ontario (COO), with the support of the Government of Ontario and Government of Canada, is currently accepting proposals to undertake an Ontario Special Study (The “Study”). The Study will provide options on a new First Nations child well-being policy and funding approach that is family-centered, community-directed, and supports better outcomes by focusing on prevention.

(Toronto, November 2, 2017) On this National Day of Action on First Nation Child Welfare, the Chiefs of Ontario are moving forward with engaging both Canada and Ontario on urgent issues – from immediate relief funding to First Nation control and jurisdiction -- after holding our Special Chiefs Assembly on Child Welfare in Ottawa less than two weeks ago.
