The BC Aboriginal Child Care Society was established in 1995 to administer the $12 million BC share of the federal government's First Nations/Inuit Child Care Initiative. We incorporated as a non-profit society in 1998 and obtained charitable tax status in 2000. One federal evaluation described BCACCS as a model for other First Nations organizations in Canada.
BCACCS exists to:
- Help Aboriginal communities develop high quality, integrated, community child care services that are based in the children’s culture, language and history. These services will promote healthy growth and development among our children.
- Build an Aboriginal child care network by undertaking research, development, advocacy and supporting communities to develop their own resources.
