Our Mission

Our mission is to increase the quality of life for our community through volunteerism, awareness, information and preventative programming.

About Wainwright & District FCSS

Wainwright & District FCS was created through a partnership between the Province of Alberta and participating municipalities. The FCSS Act enables the provincial government to participate with municipalities in the provision of preventative social services. The FCSS Act outlines the cost sharing model in which the province provides 80% and the municipalities provide 20% of the funding for FCSS.

Wainwright & District FCS is a multi-municipal program created by an agreement between the Town of Wainwright, the Municipal District of Wainwright, and the Villages of Chauvin, Edgerton and Irma.

For over thirty five years Wainwright & District FCS has provided programs of a preventative nature to the community.
