Michif Child and Family Services Agency Moves to an Expanded, New Location in Portage La Prairie

May 25, 2019

The Métis and Portage La Prairie communities gathered Friday, May 24th to officially welcome the Michif Child and Family Services Agency's (Michif Agency) new, larger location at 27 Royal Road South in Portage la Prairie.

The new location provides a more comfortable, private environment for families and room to expand Michif programs and service in the future.

The Michif Agency is mandated by the Province of Manitoba to provide child welfare services to Métis and Inuit families as well as any families who choose to receive services from the agency. It is one of two agencies which are overseen by the Metis Child and Family Services Authority.

"In the past, Michif CFS Agency has rented space in Portage, but with the new location, the opportunities to serve more families are now a reality," Billie Schibler, Chief Executive Officer of the Metis Child and Family Service Authority said. "The new Michif location will allow for the development of new programs and a more extensive service team. Our agencies work hard to support and build the capacity of parents as well as young people who are transitioning out of the child welfare system."

The Metis Child and Family Services Authority is a proud affiliate of the Manitoba Metis Federation, which is our governing body.
