The Métis Settlement Life Skills Journey program is a community-grounded life skills training program that focuses on substance use/misuse and bullying prevention through building resiliency. Since 2013, it has been implemented with 380 children aged 7-14 from six Métis Settlements: Buffalo Lake, Elizabeth, Fishing Lake, East Prairie, Gift Lake, and Kikino. We have had the pleasure to work with over 44 facilitators, 38 of whom have come from these six Métis Settlements!
