The Saskatchewan First Nations Family and Community Institute Inc. (commonly referred to as SFNFCI or the Institute) was formed in June 2007 as a non-profit organization in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  The Institute is a professional services provider that works with a number of stakeholder groups as a result of strategic partnerships and collaborations addressing research, policy and standards development, along with training and professional development opportunities in First Nations Child Welfare.  The Institute is NOT a front line agency that works directly in child prevention and protection.


How We Support First Nations Child Welfare


The Institute activities support capacity building for First Nations Child Welfare and aims to build strategic partnerships and collaborations.  We work toward creating and maintaining positive working relationships in Saskatchewan Child Welfare among all stakeholders.



Our activities also help to provide a general awareness and understanding of First Nations culture, tradition, history and knowledge within Child Welfare and impacts on Child Welfare.
