Media advisory - Event - Groundbreaking Relationship Forged Between Inuit, Métis and First Nation Communities and Children's Aid.



    OTTAWA, March 25 /CNW Telbec/ - The Children's Aid Society of Ottawa is
working towards an improved relationship with the Inuit, Métis and First
Nation communities. Over the last year, seven Ottawa Aboriginal-Inuit Service
agencies have come together with the CAS to partner on new ventures. Working
together, this partnership has assisted the agency in developing a better
understanding of the historical significance of child welfare within the
Aboriginal communities. On Friday, March 28, 2008, we are holding a
celebration whereby the agencies serving Aboriginal peoples will be showcasing
their services and resources and providing a taste of their cultures to CAS
staff.
