Carrier Sekani Family Services

Carrier Sekani Family Services (CSFS) under the guidance of Carrier Sekani Tribal Council (CSTC), has been given the mandate to establish a comprehensive infrastructure for social, health and legal programs, for the eventual take-over of these services, consistent with the CSTC objective of working towards Indian Self-Government.

Under its Certificate of Incorporation, the objectives of the Society are:

  • To develop and deliver health, social, family corrections and legal services in accordance with the needs, socio-economic conditions, and values and beliefs of the Carrier Sekani Nations.
  • To deliver all services in accordance with our great law of sharing wealth as set in our Balhats (potlatch) system.
  • To develop, implement and enhance Carrier Human Services philosophies and standards of Native people residing in the Carrier Sekani traditional territory.
  • To encourage and initiate activities appropriate to the strengthening and unifying of human service personnel in the Carrier Sekani traditional territory.
  • To develop and deliver training programs for the advancement and accreditation of human service workers in Carrier Sekani territory in accordance with Carrier Sekani philosophy and standards.

Services are adapted to meet the needs of our community members through ongoing formal and informal consultations with community, external and internal program evaluations where input is gathered from a wide variety of sources and from identification of gaps in service delivery in the community.
