Scott Zayac regional principal confirmed that the family program contracts are worth between $1.7 and $2 million

CNC says they will run programs until successfully transferred

“As long as there is funding, the college will run the family programs until they are successfully transitioned to an appropriate agency.”

Henry Reiser, President of the College of New Caledonia (CNC) explained that the college has been working with the ministry of children and family development (MCFD) on transitioning MCFD contracts.

“We’ve been assured that the programs will be transitioned across in their entirety,” he said.

Many of the programs were funded through various contracts with a number of agencies, not just MCFD, including Northern Health, and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

A CNC employee said that in the transition, many programs have now been lost to the community including FASD prevention programs, support for pregnant women, the complex developmental behavioral conditions diagnostic clinic, the kids’ edge program (community action program for children), Canadian prenatal nutrition program and daycare services, among others.

Reiser reiterated that “as long as there is funding, the college will run the family programs until they are successfully transitioned to an appropriate agency.”
