Background

The Mackenzie Region Aboriginal Interagency Committee (MRAIC) is an informal information sharing network that is hosted by Community Social Services (CSS), Northwest Alberta. There are two elements to the interagency: the monthly meeting and the email network platform.  Members are invited to attend meetings when they can and sign up to receive email correspondence that helps share program, event and referral information.  

We try to keep the information relevant to our catchment area and can share out to the other Aboriginal Interagency email networks in Grande Prairie, Peace River and High Prairie when regional initiatives come up. 

 

Meetings

MRAIC meets once per month, from September through June on the first Tuesday and are open for anyone to take part; membership is inclusive, flexible and diverse.  It is not require that everyone attends every meeting.  Below is a listing of the meetings that will be held during the upcoming year.  All meetings are held at the High Level Native Friendship Centre, 10904 95 Street, from 10:30 am -1:00 pm, unless otherwise determined.

Format

MRAIC promotes a collaborative and holistic approach while engaging in solutions-based dialogue that embraces culture and history, and strives to enhance individual and community work towards the best possible outcomes for Aboriginal children, families and communities.  Our informal format provides an open avenue for agency representatives, community members to network with one another and share ideas, resources and programming information.  On occasion other subcommittees may be formed if need arises.  Attendance is open to anyone and we do not require that everyone attends every meeting.

If you have anything that you would like added to the meeting’s agenda, or if you would like to do a short presentation about your programs and services at a meeting, please contact Wendy Goulet.  We do have AV equipment available. 

Please keep in mind the round table portion of our meetings will not be recorded.  For more information, including each of the four regional Aboriginal Interagency Committee’s (AIC) vision, mission, terms of reference, co-chair’s name and contact, visit the AIC website.  The AIC website also has a mass of information and resources that impact Aboriginal issues so please feel free to explore and reccomend additions.  If you have any questions contact Michelle or Wendy at:
