C5 leaders meet with Minister of Children's Services, Rebecca Schulz


On November 24, leaders from the C5 agencies had the opportunity to meet with Minister of Children's Services, Rebecca Schulz, to learn more about the new federal/provincial agreement on affordable and accessible childcare in Alberta. The C5 is excited about the potential positive impacts this agreement will have for parents in our province and eagerly await upcoming details.


The group also discussed the importance of Collaborative Service Delivery, which improves outcomes for children in care. Working together, agencies can ensure culture is embedded into practice, leading to better communication, decreased stress, and - ultimately - family reunifications.


The C5 comprises Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Society, Boyle Street Community Services, EMCN, Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre, and Terra Centre.
