Foster Parent Handbook
The Saskatchewan Foster Parent Handbook (3rd Edition) is a resource for new and experienced foster parents. It includes information on everyday issues as well as answers to frequently asked questions about foster care.
This handbook will provide an overview of foster care, explanations of policy, responsibilities of the foster family, advice, and other important information on areas that foster parents may encounter. It is our goal to illustrate how the efforts and contributions of foster parents, Ministry of Social Services staff, and others involved in foster care result in a professional, team approach in which best meets the needs of the children in care.
This handbook is not intended to be a policy statement, but rather an additional resource to the information that has already been provided through training and policy. If you require additional information, please refer to the Children Services Manual (CSM), your foster child’s caseworker, or the SFFA.
