History of Organization:

In 1979, Indian Bands within northern Ontario expressed concerns regarding the high number of Native children in the care of Children’s Aid Societies. In December 1981, Chiefs of Ontario Resolution endorsed: “That the child welfare agencies of Ontario and Manitoba shall not remove our children from our reserves and shall return to their Bands those of our children whom they have removed in the past; and that we the Indian Nations in Ontario shall create our own Indian Child Welfare laws, policies and programs, based on the protection of the family and the preservation of their Indian culture within the Indian family.”
