As part of the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) preparedness activities, we want to ensure all Foster Parents and Contracted Agency Care Providers update their information and know how to contact the Ministry during emergency events.

With the approaching flood and wildfire season, there is a potential that your community may be impacted and you may be required to evacuate to a safe location. To support our Foster Parents and Contracted Agency Care Providers during emergency events, MCFD has designated a contact number that is available and staffed around the clock, seven days a week.

Call 1-800-663-9122 as soon as it is safe to do so, if:

  • You have been evacuated as a result of a flood or a wildfire.
  • You have been evacuated or are in the process of evacuating and require support to seek alternative accommodation.

Additionally, to prepare in advance of the upcoming flood and wildfire season, we ask that all care providers ensure MCFD has their latest contact information, including mobile phone numbers. If you need to update your information, please call 1-800-663-9122. MCFD social workers will ensure updates are reflected in our records so that contact with the care providers for children in care can continue despite care provider location.

If you have been evacuated from your home community and require support, please contact the local MCFD office in your new area. All MCFD offices in the new area are available to provide support to caregivers.
