Home Children Canada now has charitable status

Home Children Canada became registered with the Canada Revenue Agency as a charity effective 17 March 2022.

Formerly known as British Home Children Advocacy & Research Association the CRA registration is for its educational endeavour.

The organization’s mission, from its website, is “to bring the true stories of the British Home Children to light, maintain their memory, and to reunite the families separated by the child migrant schemes.

While the advocacy role is no longer highlighted, advocacy remains in the background. Notice “true stories” as if false ones were prevalent! There’s mention of “reconnecting families unjustly torn apart by these migrant programs” ignoring the positive outcomes. While there was abuse many children benefitted by being removed from destitution and squalor in the UK.
