Consulting with organizations and individuals will be essential to the success of this project. This will include:

  • individuals with FASD
  • families and caregivers of individuals with FASD
  • organizations with an interest in FASD

We will engage in five different ways:

  1. virtual sessions (open to all)
  2. written input (focusing on organizations)
  3. small group interviews (with government representatives)
  4. online focused discussions (with a diversity of individuals with FASD and their families and caregivers, as well as clinicians and other professionals working in this area)
  5. targeted engagement led by and for Indigenous persons

There will be two rounds of engagement: gathering information and validating key findings.

Gathering information: January 2024

The first series of consultations was held January 19 to 24th, 2024.

Validating key findings and exploring implementation (Spring 2024)

Participants in round two of the engagement process will have the opportunity to provide feedback on initial findings from the evidence and first round of engagement. We will generate ideas on how to implement some of the most promising ideas and identify which of these may be most effective and feasible within the Canadian context.
