Over the last several years, we have made a commitment to provide culturally responsive, anti-oppressive services for the families we serve. We, both at Durham and our colleagues at CASs across Ontario, are dedicated to continually learning and to ensuring that we provide services that are inclusive and are respectful of the unique needs of each family. We are committed to acknowledging the role that systemic racism has played in child welfare, and to dismantling that very system has had devastating impacts our communities.
