The Partnership Forum
The Indigenous Directors Forum works with federal and provincial governments through a formal Partnership Forum table. We work together in mutual respect with a collaborative approach to identify challenges, build on strengths and develop solutions to provide ethical, proactive and accountable services to children and families based on their cultural values. We collaborate on building and enhancing child and family service delivery, addressing common interests, identifying resources, and creating committees to support the work of the Partnership Forum.
The primary focus of the BC Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) is to support all children and youth in British Columbia to live in safe, healthy and nurturing families and be strongly connected to their communities and culture. The MCFD aims to provide inclusive, culturally respectful, responsive and accessible services that support the well-being of all children, youth and families in BC.
The MCFD delivers its mandate through approximately 5,400 ministry staff working in partnership with Delegated Aboriginal Agencies, Indigenous service partners, approximately 6,000 contracted community social service agencies and foster homes, as well as cross-government and social-sector partners.Visit the Ministry of Children and Family Development website
Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) works collaboratively with partners to improve access to high quality services for First Nations, Inuit and Métis. The ISC vision is to support and empower Indigenous Peoples to independently deliver services and address the socio-economic conditions in their communities.Visit the Indigenous Services Canada website
