Messages of Support

The Former Minister of Children and Family Development,  Tom Christensen,  summarized our vision beautifully:

“Hosting an international conference in Victoria will provide wonderful opportunities for those involved in fostering, all the way from policy makers to the parents of children who are in foster care, to learn from one another in order to enhance the system and to enrich the lives of the children, youth and families involved.”

Peter Dudding, Executive Director Child Welfare League of Canada:

“On behalf of the Child Welfare League of Canada, I want to welcome the IFCO Conference and delegates to Canada. We believe that foster parents are an essential part of the child welfare system. We are honoured to have this prestigious conference come to British Columbia in 2011 and look forward to meeting you all. Thank you.”
