The United Foster Parents of Canada Corporation (UFPCC), formerly known as the Legal Defence Fund allows members to obtain legal advice and/or legal services to defend against allegations of wrong doing. Foster children, biological parents, community members and Children’s Aid Societies (CAS) have made allegations of abuse. Allegations have resulted in criminal prosecution. Mental, physical or sexual abuses have been the basis of the allegations. These allegations are not limited to the Foster Parents. Their immediate family members (living in the home), relations and/or care givers and/or babysitters as they provide foster care can also be the subject of allegations of abuse.
