The General Child and Family Services Authority is responsible for the administration and provision of child and family services by the agencies and service regions under its jurisdiction.
The General Authority is committed to helping parents and families receive the support they need through its child and family services agencies and service regions. Its fundamental goal is to work with families to keep children safe. The General Authority works with its agencies and service regions with the aim of strengthening family networks through guidance and support.
Through its agencies and service regions, the General Authority is dedicated to assisting children and youth achieve their full potential. One of the General Authority's core principles is permanency for children. Children require safety and stability from childhood through to adulthood. The General Authority also promotes initiatives that provide youth and young adults, currently or previously in the care of a Manitoba child and family services agency, opportunities to achieve goals and realize success in adulthood.
