Smoky River Family and Community Support Services – In Focus
Please note that the last day for the FCSS office in McLennan will be June 27, and it will be closed for the months of July, August and September. It will tentatively open on Oct. 3. Availability for our residents is what the McLennan FCSS office has to offer. The Town of McLennan has graciously donated to our program the use of one of their offices once a week. This allows for our administrative assistant to be available at a closer location for the residents of Donnelly and McLennan in the variety of services that we have. Such services include but are not limited to: Service Canada assistance with forms, seniors forms of various varieties, registration forms for various FCSS programs, Smoky River Transportation information and booking, supportive listening, food bank application forms, volunteer income tax program, one on one budgeting, copies of our monthly senior’s newsletter, and much, much more! All with the flexibility of bilingual services in French!

The Falher office located in the Town of Falher Building, graciously donated by the Town of Falher, will continue to provide services as usual, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (closed from noon to 1 p.m. for lunch) with our office number at (780) 837-2220.
