The philosophy of the Family Support Services Division (FSS):

is based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the Families and Children Act (FACA), recognizing the family as the fundamental unit in society and the natural environment for the growth and well being of all of its members. The division creates an integrative system of care designed to protect the rights of adults, the rights of children, and the rights of families by offering a full range of support services to adults, the elderly, children with disabilities, and families with children. Services include information and referral, case management, pauper burial, individual and family counselling, public assistance monies and other concrete services to alleviate family crisis and prevent further family disintegration.
