Our 2011 annual conference – “Building Bridges” was held May 9 – 15th, 2011 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, hosted by the PEI Federation of Foster Families.  Among the 100 plus participants were foster parents – both current and retired, youth workers, social workers and organizational members.

Registration is open for the the 31st Annual CFFA Conference “Building Bridges” to be held in Charlottetown, PEI. May 9-15, 2011.

Each year at the Canadian Foster Family Association (CFFA) National Conference a Silent Auction is held. Provinces and Territories are asked to donate items for the silent auction, and members attending are encouraged to donate items as well. In past years it has been very successful and fun for all those attending having the opportunity to bid on items from across Canada.

The silent auction is an important fundraiser for us with proceeds used to publish our newsletter, the Bulletin, costs of our annual conference and Annual General Meeting etc.

While packing your bags for this year’s conference being held in beautiful Prince Edward Island, include some items for the silent auction. If you will not be attending and would like to donate, please contact your Provincial CFFA Director who will be attending and could bring your items.

Thank you in advance for your support of this event.
