The Program
WJS Canada is committed to building strong families who are resilient to life’s challenges.

At WJS  Canada, we work to keep the family strong by keeping them together and seeing that children have the love and care they need to grow into healthy adults and we do this through 12 Family Service Centres across Central and Northern Alberta. We encourage and support family decisions in building connections with community and school resources. Our Signs of Safety planning and holistic case management approach engages and empowers families and enables them to address the emotional, social, physical and general health aspects of their lives. We create a support network including family, friends, organizations and members within the community along with other professionals. We develop goals and monitor results. When children and youth cannot live safely with their own families, we provide for their growth and successful upbringing in another family environment.
