As a result of the restructuring of the CFS system under the Aboriginal Justice Inquiry – Child Welfare Initiative , 17 Aboriginal agencies and 2 General Authority agencies are providing services to children and families in Winnipeg. ANCR acts as a first point of contact for many families who need the services of CFS. ANCR then determines with the family, which authority is most appropriate to deliver further services to them.

Over half of the children and families now utilizing ANCR’s services in Winnipeg are Aboriginal. In response to this, ANCR’s service model includes a strong emphasis on the provision of culturally appropriate services to meet the needs of children and their families. Part of this emphasis is to ensure that the human resource policies and recruitment practices are such that , over time the workforce will reflect the cultural backgrounds of the children and families that ANCR serves. In addition to this, ANCR incorporates both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal representation on the Board of Directors and a Joint Steering Committee has also been established.
