Snowoyelh te Emi:melh te Sts’ailes – Sts’ailes Child and Family Services Law

We raise our hands and recognize the brilliant work of the Sts’ailes First Nation and the implementation of their Snowoyelh te Emi:melh te Sts’ailes (Sts’ailes Child and Family Services Law) province wide as of April 1, 2024.

The Our Children Our Way Society holds sacred the systems of caring for and protecting children that have existed in Indigenous communities since the beginning of time. We recognize the deep and devastating affects colonial systems, including the imposition of provincial child welfare systems in the lives of Indigenous families and communities.

We bring honour to the ways of knowing, being and doing that have always sustained the Sts’ailes people and their inherent rights to care for and protect their beautiful children, youth, and families.
