Re-Thinking July 1
This year, many of us were a little more reflective as we marked Canada Day. While calls for truth & reconciliation grew, Canadians across the country considered how we could hold ourselves accountable for past wrongs & how we could focus on doing better. This month we're happy to welcome our first Indigenous Governor General. 
Check out our blog on Clare's Law: A recent addition to Alberta Law which helps individuals make informed decisions about potentially harmful partners. 
Our most recent blogs also include the following:

Our Summer Social Media Series...
Surviving & Thriving While Stuck at Home

We're running a campaign for youth consisting of 4 themes over 4 weeks throughout the month of July where we will discuss different tips and tricks to have a safe, healthy, and happy home life. Follow us on Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, & Instagram) or catch the weekly summary blog on our website to stay up to date on our weekly tips on topics like managing conflict and online safety. 

SAIF Covid 19 Protocols

We're committed to the safety & health of all our clients & staff. With some clients unable to be vaxxed (under 12) & some choosing not to be, we want to ensure that we are continuing to do our best to mitigate the risks for everyone.
