Family & Community Support Services

Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is a partnership between local municipal governments and the provincial Human Services Ministry. The partnership provides provincial funding that is matched with local tax dollars on an 80/20 share basis. The funding is then used to support and develop locally driven preventative social service initiatives. If you are interested in applying for a volunteer position on the board, please contact Suzan Nagel at 403-933-4348.
