The new Post Majority Unit was established in early December 2022 for young adults aged 18-25 years who are federally funded former children in care with SECFS.

Funding for the Post Majority young adults comes as a result of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) ruling that acknowledged the former children and youth in care have experienced a lack of support for their biological families, lack of resources, underfunding, a lack of cultural safety, and inadequate transitional support towards independence from CFS care.

The Unit is committed to developing wrap around support services and funding opportunities shaped by the voices of the young adults we will serve. Services are voluntary and the young adults will choose the level and/or type of support they desire. The Unit aims to ensure all areas of health, safety and wellness can be supported in a collaborative and culturally safe way.

The Unit has already started supporting the young adults including planning for the development of new and applicable programming/training and are scheduling travel to the Southeast communities to connect with on-reserve young adults to establish plans for their services. Workers are eager to connect with every eligible young adult and ensure they are provided with what needs they require to excel. Plans are to establish a Post Majority Council comprised of the participant young adults to further develop the Unit that will be reflective of their needs and ongoing support.
