Equity

Equity

Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society understands that systemic oppression and inequity continues to lead to the over-representation of racialized and marginalized populations within the child welfare system. We are working hard to develop and recommend strategies to build agency capacity and advocate for the inclusion of equity and anti-oppression principles in both policies and practice. We have a vision for an equitable organization where everyone receives supports and services in a manner that respects their culture, identity, rights and needs. We are on a mission to engage the agency and our community in meaningful conversation; identifying and dismantling inequity and oppressive structures, practices and processes.
