National Indigenous Survivors of Child Welfare Network
is a non-profit organization created BY survivors FOR survivors. We have worked hard to create a 'Network' of support for those that experienced adoption and foster care as a result of the 'Sixties Scoop'.
We recognize that the 'Sixties Scoop' spanned several decades and that still today, Indigenous children are widely overrepresented in the Canadian child welfare system.
We are NOT affiliated with any government agencies or law firms.
You belong here if you are First Nations, Inuit or Métis and:

- are seeking repatriation to your culture and/or your community.
- are looking for family members.
- are looking to connect with other Survivors.
