Who We Are

Creating Hope Society is a non-profit society established to recognize that the sixties and seventies child welfare scoop of Aboriginal children is a continuation of the Residential Schools era. We believe that it is time to halt the cycle of Aboriginal children being separated from their families and communities.

Why We Are Doing This

Creating Hope Society is carrying forward a healing process, commenced for Residential School survivors, to those who are products of a Child Welfare system that has perpetuated the legacy of the Residential Schools.

Mission

Our mission is to build on our strengths to create hope for the future for Aboriginal people impacted by the Child Welfare system, through healing processes, support, reconciliation and sharing what we have learned with each other.

Vision

Our vision is to learn from the real life experiences of those who have survived the sixties and seventies scoop and create renewed hope for the third generation of Aboriginal children who are still being apprehended.

Principles

  • To build on the resiliency of survivors
  • To not forget the past but look forward
  • To learn and acknowledge the past and move forward
