Helping to build a healthy future for our families

NB Social Pediatrics is an interprofessional, community-based approach to care for children and their families in New Brunswick

Our Model Includes 5 Core Pillars

Tailored Services For Families

The Community Social Pediatrics Clinic provides comprehensive supports to children and families based on their individual strengths, needs, and goals.

The Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP) pairs birthing people who use substances with an advocate to support their goals over a 3-year period.

Community Programs

Creative Expressions supports social-emotional health by teaching children about their emotions and how to express them through art.

Cooking Up Justice is a cooking class for teens with education on gender-based violence and healthy relationships


We mentor students from Dalhousie University, Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN), University of New Brunswick (UNB) and New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) through internship, research projects, studentships, and employment opportunities.

We are also creating a "community mentorship model" to support the delivery of our programs in other communities.

NBSP is dedicated to upholding the rights of children. This includes advocating for resources and services that are in the best interest of a child or family.

At a system level, we work with community and government partners to advocate for systems and policies that foster healthy childhood development and family well-being.

Research & Policy

NBSP implements evidence-based practices that support children to live full, healthy lives. We monitor outcomes through research registries, surveys, administrative data, and interviews.

Further, our team researches relevant promising practices, and trends locally, nationally, and globally.

"I appreciate PCAP so much for all that the team has done for my son and I. I appreciate how my advocate never gave up on me and is an inspiration to me."
