FSIO’s Annual General Meeting is always a welcome opportunity to bring together staff working in family support programs across Ontario.
The 2016 AGM also included the opportunity for FSIO members and supporters to hear from Honourable Indira Naidoo-Harris, (then Associate Minister of Education, Child Care and Early Years; currently, Minister Responsible for Early Years and Child Care and Minister of the Status of Women) and to provide feedback regarding Building a Better Future: A Discussion Paper for Transforming Early Years and Child Care in Ontario. The FSIO board was pleased to connect with so many of you from near and far and to feel our collective enthusiasm in shaping the future of family support and early years programs in Ontario. Your comments influenced our response to Building a Better Future that was submitted to the province in December 2016. We look forward to continuing to work with you—stay tuned for upcoming FSIO events!
