“Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) is pleased to announce a new partnership between MNBC and OSNS Child Development Centre in Penticton. MNBC’s Métis Family Connections Navigator and Métis Early Childhood Education Recruitment and Retention Specialist have office space at OSNS. This is a wonderful opportunity to collaborate and be connected with community.” – MNBC Minister of Education, Debra Fisher.
“The OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre has provided children and families with support for over 40 years. The Centre sees over 1,500 children annually and provides a wide range of assessment, treatment and early childhood programming. “Having on site navigators for Metis children and families is wonderful. Close collaboration with our Indigenous program partners is a priority area for us. We recognize that we all must increase the intensity of conversations in ensuring access to appropriate services for every child.” – OSNS Executive Director Manisha Willms.
