The Kewaywin Circle initiates and fosters support, guidance, and connections to community and cultural knowledge for families, children, and youth working with the agency who self-identify as Indigenous and caregivers who have self-identifying Indigenous children/youth living in their homes. The Circle further assists and guides agency staff providing services to Indigenous families, children, and youth, and to the Board of Directors (who hold the agency accountable to commitments made, work being done, and policies/procedures in place). The Circle also offers input via an Indigenous lens regarding services FACSFLA provides and makes recommendations for change.

The Kewaywin Circle vision is to reignite and ground children, youth, and families indigenous to Turtle Island in their culture, connections, and opportunities for sharing knowledge, while ensuring that those children and youth grow up healthy and integrated within their families, cultures, and communities.
