ABOUT THE MIYOOPIMAATISHIHK (WELLBEING) PROGRAM
The Miyoopimaatishihk (Wellbeing) Program (Southern/Heritage Michif, translated by Norman Fleury) is available to children from birth to eight, who are enrolled in the Métis Family Connections Program. Through the Miyoopimaatishihk (Wellbeing) Program, families can apply for financial support to assist with the cost of a wide range of services, programs and products, including but not limited to respite care, speech therapy, assessments, specialized equipment, and mental health supports.
MNBC recognizes that some children may require multiple supports and services. Please contact us to discuss your child’s needs. If more than one child needs support, you can apply for each one on an individual basis.
If approved, there is no cost to the parents or guardian, to a maximum amount of $5,000 per year, and payment is arranged directly with the service provider or vendor.
