Foster Families


We are looking for families to welcome very young children (aged 0–5), children (aged 5–12), and adolescents (aged 12–17). 

We have an urgent need for families of all ethnocultural and religious backgrounds who can take in a child or a group of 2–3 siblings.

  • You speak English and live on the Island of Montréal? 
  • You like children and young people, and you have time to give them? 
  • You want to provide a welcoming and comforting environment to young people who need a safe and loving place to flourish and grow? 
  • You have enough room in your home to provide a safe, clean, and comfortable living space?
  • You are ready to be responsible for a young person and to consider them a member of your family?

How to Become a Foster Family

  1. Contact us at our Foster Family Recruitment line at 514-989-1885, extension 1139.
  2. The receptionist will schedule a telephone interview with you. If you fit the requirements, you will then be invited to two evening information sessions. 
  3. After those sessions, we will inform you in writing whether you have been accepted as a candidate for the evaluation process. If you are accepted as a candidate, you will need to complete the forms and provide references.
  4. Once we have received the required documentation, a resource worker will be assigned to complete the evaluation of your home. 
  5. A report on your candidature will be presented to the Foster Family Evaluation Committee, which will determine whether you will be accepted as a foster family. 
  6. Once approved, a contract will be signed before a young person is transitioned into your home. 

Our Young People Need You

The young people and families we work with are English-speakers receiving services under the Youth Protection Act or the Act Respecting Health Services and Social Services. 

These young people, aged 0 to 17, have generally lived through difficulties in their family environment (negligence, rejection, physical or sexual violence). They can also have behavioural issues, emotional or social difficulties, or developmental delays. 

They come from a variety of ethnocultural and religious backgrounds. To meet their needs, we do our best to pair these young people with families that have a similar ethnocultural and religious profile.
