Publications and Databases

The Caring Society provides and distributes high quality research and information regarding Aboriginal children, youth and families. 

We collaborate with scholars to produce or distribute research relevant to Aboriginal children, families and Nations consistent with the OCAP Principles (Ownership, Control, Access and Possession) and work to ensure the safety and well being of First Nations children, young people and families by facilitating the transfer of traditional knowledge to guide and support families about the care of this generation of First Nations children and young people, and those that follow.

The Caring Society maintains a free annotated database on Aboriginal children, youth and families. The database currently has over 2,500 articles with up to 50 new articles each year. Scholars, students and members of the public frequently use the database to inform their own research, write papers or learn more about Aboriginal children, youth and families in Canada.
