Kwe’we are pleased to provide this message as a part of the Agency’s Annual Report to highlight the important work being done by MCFSNB Inc on behalf of our First Nations. The new model is an opportunity for us to strengthen our communities by continuing to work diligently to co-develop programming and Infrastructure that respects our Mi’gmaq Culture, Language and Heritage while assisting our Families and Children reach/develop their full potential. The legacy of the Indian Act, Residential and Indian Day Schools has caused much intergenerational trauma and loss. Reversing the loss of Language, Culture and connection to our Families and our Traditional Territories cause inequitable laws, systems and practices by our Treaty Partners has been an ongoing challenge. But we are committed to making that change happen to support the healing of our People.
