The Touchstones of Hope are a set of principles to guide a reconciliation process for those involved in Indigenous child welfare activities. They are also transferable across a variety of areas, including health care, education and research.
The movement fosters relationship building and provides opportunities to have respectful and truthful conversations about child welfare in order to create a new reality for Indigenous children. This includes concrete next steps for moving forward together so that all Indigenous children are healthy and living with dignity and respect.
