The Family Support Institute (FSI) is a provincial non-profit society. FSI supports 10,000 families each year. This support stems mainly from our volunteer network of over 250 volunteers who support families in BC by sharing experiences and expertise, connecting families with each other, guiding families to supports and services in their regions, and facilitating training and educational sessions. FSI is unique in Canada. FSI believes that families are the experts and the strongest voice when it comes to their children. We support all families, with children of all ages and all disabilities. We have been operating successfully for 30 years.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn the successful steps to building a grass roots, family driven support organization.
  • Learn what hurdles we have faced as a provincial society over the past 30 years, and how policy was developed and practice was informed as a result. 
  • Learn the challenges and benefits of a volunteer driven organization, and what strategies are most effective for informing public policy and community development.
  • Learn how we define diversity and how we embrace inclusion and family support, with unique approaches to collaboration with government and service providers that complements the work we do provincially.
