Why are there so many Aboriginal children receiving Child Intervention services in the CFSAs?

As there are a high number of Aboriginal children living off‐reserve, there are more Aboriginal children served through a CFSA than through a DFNA. 

First Nation people living on‐reserve receive services from a Delegated First Nation Agency (DFNA), or if there is no DFNA, from the Child and Family Services Authority (CFSA) within that 
geographical region. We have Agreements with 18 DFNAs on 40 out of 48 First Nations in Alberta. 

Métis people living on a Métis Settlement receive services from the Métis Settlements CFSA.
