FASD Awareness Month is Fast Approaching!

Keep your eyes glued here and to the MFCI Facebook page for upcoming events, contests and more!

Today is day 34 of the #94in94 campaign.

In response to Call to Action #34, we continue to advocate government for expanded programs and more appropriate programs related to offenders with FASD and criminal justice involvement. We are excited about the current Manitoba pilot project which assesses young adults in the court system for FASD. Additionally, in 2019, Manitoba opened a sentencing court specifically for offenders with FASD- the first of its kind in Canada.

Today is day 33 of the #94in94 campaign.

In response to Call to Action #33, we continue to build relationships with Indigenous peoples and communities through projects such as the Looking After Each Other project. This project provides us with teachings, allowing us to incorporate a culturally appropriate informed approach to existing FASD intervention and prevention programs. We also continue to advocate government for more appropriate programs.
