CANGRANDS welcomes all grandparents and Kinship families who are raising grandchildren or extended family members to our home on-line. Our aim is to support grandmothers, grandfathers, and Kinship families to maintain or re-establishing family ties. Here you will find some answers to frequently asked questions concernin legal and health issues, as well as practical help for those Kin raising children and grandchildren.
CANGRANDS is a not-for-profit organization devoted to providing kinship support for caregiver families across Canada.
Approximately 62,500 children are being raised by Kin in Canada. Most of these children are being raised by a grandmother or aunt who is retired with very low income. There is very little in the way of support for these children, many of which have suffered neglect and abuse. There is even less support for the Kin caregivers. However, private and corporate donations are now being accepted to help support children attending this year's camping event.
You can now pay for your new membership, or even renew your membership on-line. Our members come from all walks of life and are committed to helping each other through encouragement, support and the sharing of information.
Volunteers are always welcome.
Special events are also being planned. Our BLOG is still active.
