Help us Build Healthier and Safer Communities for both people and animals.
Our vision is to be the philanthropic leader that sustains the innovation, coordination, and integration of Animal-Assisted Support Services within Canada's health-care, social service, and justice sectors in order to improve the quality of life of people with physical, emotional, and social challenges.
Value Creation Statement
CFAS invests in the human-animal bond, one of Canada's most precious natural resources, in order to build healthier and safer communities for both people and animals.
Why a cross-disability public foundation?
CFAS recognized that there was a need to build a single-point of entry to access and share information and resources in order to co-create a seamless continuum of Animal-Assisted Support Services so that as many people, companion, and service animals as possible could experience love just for being. Why is this important? Because Love changes everything.
