We are striving to establish regular monthly meetings with the local Ministry of Children and Families (MCFD) office. The purpose of these meetings is to be informed of all families involved with this agency and to provide support as well as advocacy for our families while remaining culturally sensitive.
Further, we will be taking the steps towards the creation of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with MCFD ensuring our fiduciary rights are heard and recognized as it relates to the well-being of our children. The need for a child welfare committee will be established to further support this MOU and its elements.
We work in collaboration with families both on and off reserve to provide support, advocacy and access to a Family Support worker.
