The Peguis Legislation

In keeping with our rights to determine our own means of providing Child and Family services, Peguis CFS has started the process of developing draft legislation for review and input by community members.

The purpose of this process is to ensure that members feel they have had the opportunity to be heard, and to provide input on the future of our child and family services.

This community engagement process will take place online, through email and in virtual and in-person meetings that have been set-up to provide you with an opportunity to speak on the needs in our community.
