IFSD Project Overview - English
"The purpose of this project is to develop reliable data collection, analysis and reporting methodology for analyzing the needs of First Nations Child and Family Services (FNCFS) Agencies.
The Institute of Fiscal Studies and Democracy (IFSD) at the University of Ottawa will provide technical expertise to analyze agency needs, will provide strategic advice on how to best monitor and respond to actual agency needs from fiscal and governance perspectives, with an approach informed by understanding, existing research, and analysis of assessments done by agencies and communities.
The IFSD will engage with the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) as the project contract holder and with the National Advisory Committee on First Nations Child and Family Services (NAC) for directional and strategic support." (http://www.ifsd.ca/en/project-overview)
