Clinical Advisory Council

Our Clinical Advisory Council  helps support our priority of ensuring our work is informed on best practices & current trends in inter professional practice, as well as meeting the needs of more rural based communities & diverse populations. The Council meets quarterly.

This is not a supervisory or governance body. If you have a trauma informed care focus &  carry a professional designation such as a registered social worker, psychologist, etc. and are familiar with family violence and abuse as part of your work, we'd love to hear from you. 

We're looking for a diverse set of voices & perspectives, with preference given to 2SLGBTQ+ & indigenous lenses as well as those with experience in programming for men & boys as it relates to family violence.

Casino Volunteers

As the recipient of casino funds, every 18 months or so, we are required to cover a significant number of volunteer shifts for a 2 day casino that we are awarded.

Our next casino is expected to be the 2nd quarter of 2023.

Whether you are experienced as a casino volunteer or a complete newbie, we're happy to have your help. You do need to be 18+ to sign up & have gov't issued picture ID. 

If you like doing casinos or would simply just like to help us out, we would love to have you! Please contact Tanya to sign up and we'll contact you sooner to the time we'll need to fill our shifts. 

Please note: all training & orientation is provided onsite when you volunteer to be a casino volunteer. And you get a free meal :) What's not to love?
