Métis Calgary Family Services (MCFS) is an Aboriginal non-profit, registered charity, that serves urban Aboriginal children, youth, and families. MCFS promotes the principle that the community has the right to assume authority and responsibility for the design, development, and implementation of Child, Family, and Youth Services to the urban community and that community involvement and participation is essential to the process. Following this principle, the goal is to develop services that are responsive, community-based, oriented, and accountable, that reinforce traditional patterns of caring, sharing, and co-operation within families and the community.
Culturally authentic and relevance is the hallmark of the Métis Calgary Family Services spectrum of engagement.

MCFS is involved in collaborative and consultative activities with various levels of government, funders, and service providers, as well as community. MCFS has successfully delivered a balanced spectrum of services in Calgary since 1991, evolving capacity in the community that reflects our urban aboriginal community needs.
