IFSD will produce monthly updates posted on this website. These written updates can be supplemented with briefings to interested parties by IFSD. Project results (interim and final) will be published on this website as soon as they are available.
IFSD is pleased to provide this fourth monthly update to its stakeholders on the progress of the First Nations Child and Family Services (FNCFS) project.
IFSD has developed typologies to inform the cost estimation model during the month of August.
Chart 1: Number of agencies by child population served.
Chart 2: Percentage of agencies with at least one community without year-round accessibility vs. year-round road accessibility for all communities served.
To showcase and share your program innovations, IFSD is developing profiles of programs in prevention, protection, addictions management, mental health, violence prevention and family support. If you would like a program included in our analysis, contact us with:
To enhance the cost estimation model, IFSD still needs your help.
Are you willing to offer more insight into your agency’s resource profile? We are looking for agencies who are willing to share their experiences in writing or in conversation (by phone) to offer perspective on the following six questions:
IFSD will continue its work testing the cost estimation model based on the data provided by agencies. IFSD will be refining its cost estimation model to be shared in the September update.
IFSD will continue to engage with agencies throughout the project and keep agencies up to date on progress with monthly updates. IFSD is pleased to respond to requests for further information or to provide individual briefings on the project and its progress.
