IEYS is a family-centered program that works in partnership with parents and/or caregivers to provide support and prevention strategies to families who have children (0-6 years old). Although the services are directed toward the child, the program provides a variety of support services to the family, which may include peer support, advocacy, parenting skill development, life skills training, and linking the family to community-based activities and services.

Our mandate is to provide support for families with Indigenous children through:

  • Fostering and nurturing a safe and healthy family environment between families and community services;
  • Empowering families to become active participants in the community;
  • Learning, growing and strengthening our families, our team and our community.

The focus is on prevention and participation is voluntary.

IEYS is run by a committee of Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations that provide various programs for Indigenous children 0 to 6 years old. The program is fully funded by the Ministry for Children and Families
