Register as a child welfare professional with Canada's Waiting Children


Canada's Waiting Children is designed to help social workers find prospective matches for the children and youth on their caseloads who are waiting for permanent families.

By registering with us, you will gain access to the profiles that families have sent us and uploaded on the website. We will also be able to send you any further information we have received from the families, such as their home studies and family information forms.  

If you read a family profile that interests you, please email us at and we will provide you with any further information we have. We will also put you in touch with the social worker who is working with the family (or individual) who has registered with us. 

Please also consider listing the waiting children and youth on your caseloads with Canada's Waiting Children. We believe this is one more avenue that you can use to broaden your recruitment efforts for the children and youth in your care who need permanent families. Once you are registered as a professional, you can fill out a referral form to upload a picture and profile of a child, youth, or sibling group here

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us
