Our Guiding Principles

We welcome you to look through the various sections of our website to learn more about our Metis CFS Authority, our Manitoba Metis CFS System and Child Welfare in Manitoba.

Métis families and communities have the right and responsibility to care for children. Metis Child, Family and Community Services will work to strengthen the capacity of families to care for children through culturally relevant community-based programs.

The Métis family and community is the cornerstone of our nation and is built upon love, respect, honour, strength and heritage. We believe in the inherent strength of our families and in the need to build on the capacity of our community to care for and nurture Métis children.

Michif Child and Family Services is committed to empowering families and the community to share the responsibility for protecting our children and youth. We are committed to ensuring that all children and youth receive safe and nurturing care that will enhance their development and well-being.

Michif Child and Family Services recognizes that being involved with child and family services is stressful and for many families involuntary. We have worked hard to modify our approach and how families experience our agency, so that despite the involuntary nature of our services, families feel respected, empowered and supported.
