Dates of existence



The Children's Aid Society of Vancouver was established through the efforts of a group of private citizens concerned about child neglect in the city. The goal of the Society was to protect children from abuse and neglect and to provide them with the family life or other forms of care necessary to enable them to become good citizens. Expenses were met through voluntary contributions and small grants from the provincial and municipal governments. Following World War II, there began a gradual shifting of responsibility from the Children's Aid Society to the developing Child Welfare Services administered by the provincial government.
