Professional / Capacity Development
The Social Development program is proud to announce that our first year of the First Nation Child Welfare Advocate program was a success. Our first group of students graduated this year, and we are very happy to have had them at our campus site.
In September 2013 the Anishinabek Educational Institute is offering another intake for the First Nation Child Welfare Advocate Certificate program (1 year). We are urging First Nation communities to promote this program that is being offered to all who may be interested.
The First Nation Child Welfare Advocate program prepares students for the role of advocate or representative on behalf of a First Nation, child and/or family in relation to child protection matters. Upon completion of the program, students will have developed skills in case/file assessment, report writing, negotiation and advocacy. Students will gain knowledge of the Canadian Child Welfare System, treaty and Aboriginal rights, the Indian Act, First Nations and their organizational political structures, and the Child and Family Services Act (CFSA). This is a great opportunity for all who are interested in Child Welfare. If you are interested in joining this program, please contact the Anishinabek Educational Institute at (705) 497 9127 to register for fall submissions.
