The Power of Caring

Collectively, we are a "network of care" that is rooted in the traditional philosophy of collectiveness.

  • About Southern Network of Care
  • About Southern Network

    Responsible for the establishment and management of a province-wide child & family service delivery system.

  • Member Agencies

    Collaborating with Member Agencies to deliver child and family services in our communities.

  • Departmental Units

    Each departmental unit contributes an important component towards supporting our mandate.

      - Tara L. Petti, CEO
    • Many Aboriginal organizations and communities have adopted the 7 guiding principles – or Seven Teachings – in one form or another, as a moral stepping stone and cultural foundation. At Southern Network, we look for the core competencies related to the Seven Teachings to be present in anyone considering a career with us or or Member Agencies.
      - Tara Petti, CEO
