This project is designed to help identify and cost the needs of First Nations not served by a FNCFS agency that wish to design and deliver child and family services or prevention services in their communities. By defining needs, costing approaches, and identifying current gaps, First Nations and stakeholders can prepare a way forward.
The agreement in principle among the parties to the CHRT includes an assessment of need in First Nations. This is an opportunity to share your vision and shape a new approach for supporting activities in First Nations.
IFSD depends on the experiences, perspectives, and information from research collaborators to connect this work to realities in First Nations. We are asking for your collaboration in one of two ways:
Collaborators and session participants will help to inform the cost estimation exercise to better understand and quantify the needs of First Nations not served by a FNCFS agency in child and family services.
Your contributions are critical to ensuring this work reflects needs and realities in First Nations.
This work is being done to understand and costs child and family services in First Nations not served by a FNCFS agency.
The information and experiences shared by First Nations will help to: produce cost-estimates, define wise practices, and needs.
The shared data will contribute to the development of models, tools, reports, briefings, and decision-support for stakeholders.
IFSD follows OCAP® Principles. IFSD asked FNIGC to provide a technical review of its tools and materials.
Any information that is disseminated publicly will be aggregated and/or anonymized to protect the privacy of participants.
All data shared by First Nations through the questionnaire will be anonymized and aggregated for any use. This means, no one can be identified in any publicly shared work.
All data shared by First Nations will be held on password protected cloud-storage system (OneDrive). All servers associated to IFSD’s cloud-storage system are resident in Canada. Data shared will be accessible only to IFSD staff directly engaged in the project.
Research collaborators and participants can withdraw at any time. Any data shared with IFSD will be destroyed.
