Yellowhead Tribal Council (YTC) is an organization that represents four First Nations (Alexander, Alexis, Sunchild and Ochiese) as a political advisory body. YTC has been in operations for over 40 years and delivers programming and services to each Nation.
As part of its commitment to ensure the highest quality of programs and services for each Nation and as part of their advocacy of Treaty rights, three of the Nations (Alexis, Alexander and Sunchild) have begun a project focusing on restoring balance in their communities and reducing the number of children entering the care of Alberta Children’s Services.
With full participation of each Nation, community dialogues will be initiated whereby each Nation will define their needs and with the input of Elders, youth and the community a plan to restore balance within their communities will be developed. A pilot of those services and strategies will be developed and implemented over the course of the next three years. The Nations again will have direct input into how effective the strategies and services are and recommend changes as the needs of each Nation grows and develops.
