Bridging Connections
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Program

In support of Métis Albertans impacted by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), we are offering our Bridging Connections program.

FASD is a lifelong condition affecting people exposed to alcohol in the womb. We know living with FASD involves strengths and challenges. Each person is impacted differently and may need supports in different parts of their lives.

This program allows us to walk alongside our community and connect them with helpful FASD networks and resources. No one should have to do it alone.

Our Bridging Connections team helps by:

  • Providing supports and advocacy before, during, and after assessment
  • Linking Métis Albertans with cultural supports and resources
  • Connecting individuals to FASD Networks, resources, and information
  • Supporting the navigation of community resources and systems
  • Informing and supporting the MNA citizenship process
  • Offering cultural training to professionals who work with the Métis community

Who is eligible?

  • MNA citizens and self-identified Métis people living in Alberta
  • Must be diagnosed with or suspected of having FASD

Take the first step today by filling out the Bridging Connections intake form! Email your completed form and any questions you have to Erin at enorthey@metis.org, or call 780-455-2200 to have our program staff walk you through the process.

Let’s cross this bridge together.

Sincerely,

The Children & Family Services Team
