The FASD Network is excited to announce that in 2024 the organization will launch a new program for youth who are impacted by FASD. We would like to thank Public Safety Canada for funding the "Family Connections Program."  It is the hope of the Network that this program will help individuals and their families to learn about the complexities of the disability, gain valuable life skills, and develop the ability to implement strategies that can assist them in day-to-day life.

Information about the program and how to access services is available below. If you have any questions or would like more information about programming available through the Network, please contact:
