Peel Children’s Aid Society urgently needs foster homes for children and teens with complex needs, and sibling groups. Caregivers from diverse backgrounds who have experience working with neurodivergent young people or those with medical conditions are preferred.



Caregivers are adults who provide children with typical day-to-day care and nurture them through difficult times. In the past, foster caregivers were referred to as foster parents.  This term however, can be very misleading as children coming into care already have parents. The term ‘foster caregiver’ was introduced to make the transition into fostering less confusing for children. It might even feel like spending time with an auntie or uncle.


To become a caregiver, you do not need to be married, have children, or own your own home. You do need strong parenting skills, a love of children and the time to devote to a child physically as well as emotionally. We are always looking for caregivers of diverse backgrounds to help children maintain their social, cultural, and religious connections. As the agency works toward helping bring children and families back together, caregivers are also involved with the child’s biological family through visits, meetings and by being supportive.
