About Us

We are a multiservice agency responsible for the protection of children and youth; the delivery of developmental services for children, youth and adults; and the facilitation of programs and services to help strengthen families and support their learning, growth and relationships with their children.

Land Acknowledgement

We at Family and Children’s Services of Renfrew County wish to express our ongoing commitment to formally recognize and acknowledge the traditional lands on which we live and work. We find it essential to honour that for time immemorial, and long before our arrival, Indigenous Peoples lead fruitful and full lives on these lands.

We acknowledge that the land we are standing upon is the traditional territory of the Algonquin People. The citizens of the Algonquin Nation did not relinquish title to their land to the government by treaty or otherwise. The Algonquin way of living has resulted in great stewardship of this land and preservation of the beautiful landscape and bounty provided by Mother Earth.

As we journey along the path of reconciliation, we commit to educating ourselves as individuals, as professionals and as a community. We look forward to a new reconciled, respectful relationship with all Indigenous People.
