A Crown ward is a term used in Canada to describe a foster child who has been made the legal responsibility of the government. For example, once a child has been removed from their family (due to abuse, neglect or because the parents volunteered or were convinced to give up their child in order to receive assistance for their child) the children are then called Crown wards.
A newsletter called The Crown Ward can be found on the Internet at http://www.afterfostercare.ca. This newsletter was created by a former Crown ward and is always seeking input from those interested.
