Individuals who are compassionate, committed, patient, understanding and energetic

At Cornerstone, we celebrate diversity and welcome people from all backgrounds. As long as you’re able to provide stability to a child or young person in need, then you could make a great foster parent.

What do I need to become a foster parent?

Experience in the mental health field is valued and reworded; however, you don’t need qualifications or experience to be a foster parent, many people choose fostering after raising a family or they are looking for change in their life. What counts is that you’re passionate about changing a child’s life and eager to make a difference.

However, there are a few things you’ll need to foster with Cornerstone:

You need to be over the age of 21

You need a spare bedroom or be willing to live in our home.

You’ll need to be available to foster full-time (if married, one parent will need to be home full time)

You need to have Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status and no criminal record.

You need a valid driver’s license

You need to be healthy and free of any communicable diseases

We are actively seeking highly qualified foster parents/families for intensive home-based care
