Family and Community Support Services

The FCSS philosophy is based on a belief that self-help contributes to a sense of integrity, self-worth and independence. Programs developed are intended to help individuals in their community to adopt healthy lifestyles, thereby improving the quality of life and building the capacity to prevent and/or deal with crisis situations should they arise.

FCSS is available to provide assistance to residents Monday to Friday between 8:00am and 4:30pm. For support during these times, please call 780-992-6267.
