MCFD Framework - Advocacy
There is information coming from many different sources about the controversial Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) framework for children with support needs.
See the latest information and advice on how to advocate on a system-wide basis so that all citizens across disabilities receive the support they need on our “New MCFD Framework for Children with Support Needs” page.

Donate to ACT's Programs
ACT is asking for professionals and family members to make a donation to ACT - if you have the means. A $10 a month donation multiplied by the thousands of people who use ACT’s resources monthly, would allow us to meet the demand for our resources in 2022.
