Every children in Canada need the tools and the right people to help them through childhood. Aboriginal children, often part of small communities, should also have access to high quality early childhood development services. This is why we at ContactsforLess.ca support BC Aboriginal Child Care Society.

What We Do
We are committed to nurturing excellence through community outreach, education, research and advocacy, to ensure every Aboriginal child in B.C. has access to spiritually enriching, culturally relevant, high quality early childhood development services.
We believe in supporting communities, programs and services to ensure every Aboriginal child has a healthy, happy start in life so they thrive within their families, communities and nations.
Because we value children, we work with all our partners to ensure that Aboriginal ECD services across the province are delivered with the highest quality of current and promising practice.
BCACCS realizes the high importance of engaging in research and policy analysis. Data collection, literature reviews, surveys, community engagement and project/program evaluations are all necessary in order to better advocate for both the financial and political support that is necessary to improve Aboriginal Early Childhood Development (EDC) services.
Over the years, BCACCS has been well placed as a champion in the field of Aboriginal ECD research. Partnerships with various organizations, colleagues and academic experts alike, have produced several publications that focus on topics specific to Aboriginal ECD.
Some BCACCS publications are downloadable, while others are only available through hard copy purchase.
