Families may inquire about the program by contacting Amy Graham, Project Manager (204-953-5820 or amyg@kanikanichihk.ca) or one of our Site Coordinators.  Families will be asked to complete a registration form, which includes a short, confidential needs assessment. All families will be contacted within 1 week of submitting a registration form. At that time, a intake appointment will be arranged. If the session is full, families may request to be placed on a wait list for the next session. 

Each intake appointment will consist of:

  • Reviewing registration form

  • Confirm all persons who will be attending program

  • Discuss and plan for transportation and child care needs

  • Review consent forms and surveys

  • Confirm plan for first date of program
