CANGRANDS is a not-for-profit organization devoted to providing support for Kin caregiver families across Canada.
Approximately 57,000 children are being raised by Kin in Canada. Most of these children are being raised by a grandma 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.
CANGRANDS welcomes all grandparents and family members who are raising grandchildren or extended family members to our new home on-line. Our aim is to promote, support and assist families in maintaining or re-establishing family ties; especially between grandchildren and grandparents and extended families. Here you will find some answers to frequently asked questions concerning legal and health issues, as well as practical help for those Kin raising children and grandchildren.
