Are you a Sixties Scoop Survivor? We are looking for you!
ANCFSAO and the Sixties Scoop Foundation are working collaboratively together to identify individuals that self-identify as Sixties Scoop survivors and would like an opportunity to have a direct say in the creation of their foundation.
What is the Engagement Process?
The Sixties Scoop Engagement Process is to hear from as many Sixties Scoop survivors as possible, from across Canada and beyond about how the Foundation can best serve you. We will be asking you what they want the Foundation to do to best serve you in recovery and reclamation. How can the Foundation best support your goals? Your voice and your insight are critical in helping answer these questions.
When and where are they happening?
From September 2019 to February 2020, we will be launching our Survivor Engagement Processes which includes 10 Sixties Scoop Survivors Engagement Sessions and an online engagement platform.
