Parent Link Funding Changes

On Nov. 4, 2019, Parent Link centres across the province received notice from the provincial government that contract funding for all Parent Link services will end on March 31, 2020 and will not be renewed.  The MD of Bighorn will work with our partners to help to continue to deliver programs for children and families in our area.
