Psychological Assessment Services
Part 1: Introduction
This Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued by Surrounded by Cedar Child and Family Services (SCCFS) for the purpose of awarding a contract to a Registered Psychologist to complete a series of psychoeducational assessments for urban Indigenous children and youth in care (attending various schools within School Districts 61, 62 &63) and provide recommendations for learning difficulties to be included in the child/youth’s Individual Educational Plan (IEP).
SCCFS is an urban Delegated Indigenous Agency. Through an agreement with the Provincial Director of Child Welfare, SCCFS is responsible for the administration of various sections of the Child, Family and Community Services Act (CFCSA), including Guardianship & Permanency Planning services to urban Indigenous children and youth in Continuing Care. Additionally, SCCFS offers a variety of non-delegated support services.
The mission of SCCFS is to provide child and family services rooted in cultural values and beliefs to restore and enhance the strength and resiliency of the urban Indigenous community. Our vision is of healthy children who will grow up connected to their families, communities and cultures.
