Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is a joint municipal/provincial partnership that funds preventive social service programs that enhance the well-being of individuals, families and communities.

The provincial Family and Community Services Act sets out the basic eligibility for program funding detailed in the FCSS Handbook.

The City, with the assistance of the Citizen Services Advisory Board (CSAB), identifies priorities for FCSS funding annually on the basis of current social planning and demographic information.

FCSS is not accepting new applications at this time.
