First Nations Child and Family Services (FNCFS) Program funds First Nations and First Nation authorized service providers to support delivery of prevention and protection services to meet the needs of children, youth and families ordinarily resident on reserve or in the Yukon.
April 1, 2022 ISC began fudning Post Majority Care Services as part of “immediate measures”
The revised FNCFS Program Terms and Conditions continue to improve aspects of the program that were determined by the Tribunal to be discriminatory and support the implementation of the immediate measures toward long term reform of the child and family services program.
FNCFS funds First Nations and First Nation authorized service providers to deliver Post Majority Services
at actual cost
to youth aging out of care and young adults who were formerly in alternative care from the age of majority up to and including the age of 25
The extension of care services aims to achieve positive outcomes for First Nations youth by:
Providing voluntary wrap-around supports in the transition of First Nations youth into adulthood and independence that meets their distinct needs, support their safety and well-being in a culturally appropriate way that is in their self-identified best interest, and provided on the basis of substantive equality.
Some spaces have just opened up, so this is your LAST CALL for the 2022 Indigenous Child and Family Well-Being Conference!
Cindy Blackstock, Norma Jacobs, Duke Peltier, Sam Gilchrist and Meagan Lindley with the ANCFSAO Youth Panel will be joining our conference as keynote speakers, each speaking on topics that will ground and inform our work in the Indigenous Child and Family Well Being sector.
In addition to these powerful keynotes, the conference will feature 32 different workshops covering topics such as “Building Positive Relationships with First Nations”, “Indigenous Approaches to Alternative Dispute Resolution”, “Traditional Healer Programs”, “Indigenous Child and Family Wellbeing Assessment Tools”, and many more. The workshops have been carefully chosen to be informative, relevant, and culturally grounded. Conference participants will also have the opportunity to get outside the classroom and join on the land programming with two daily hikes.
Rounding out the conference are daily Sunrise Ceremony, nightly socials, and a Full Moon ceremony on Monday, November 8.
A full list of workshops and presenters will be released shortly.
