Brighter Futures



Our objective is to improve the quality of, and access to, community-level culturally sensitive wellness services to help create healthy families and a healthy community environment for children, parents & community members

The five components of the Brighter Futures program include:

  1. Parenting
  2. Healthy Babies
  3. Injury Prevention
  4. Mental Health
  5. Early Childhood

The T7MC Brighter Futures Coordinator works in co-operation with the Treaty 7 Brighter Futures Coordinators and the Regional Brighter Futures Coordinator of First Nations & Inuit Health (FNIH). The Committee meets quarterly to:

  • share information, resources & Best Practices
  • recommend enhancements to administrative tools (e.g. work plan & reporting forms)
  • enhance capacity
  • identify issues

Another service that this department provides, in co-operation with the Elders Advisory Committee, is an annual Elders Gathering.

Our current Brighter Futures Coordinator is Gale George
