Hamilton Child and Family Supports (formerly The Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton) is committed to the priority of ensuring that those who are involved with the organization receive equitable services and are affirmed in their identity and lived experiences with all areas of oppression. In the agency’s work with families, we are committed to an anti-oppressive practice in which we challenge the impacts of power and privilege, reduce barriers, and are inclusive and affirming of the broad range of diversity in the Hamilton community.

Much of this work is led by the Director of Equity, Inclusion and Community Development alongside key internal and external committees with continual efforts to be better informed by equity-seeking groups in the broader community. We continue to learn from these voices which help inform our work and understanding of one another. Our journey of providing equitable services to all families is ongoing.
