The Edmonton and area Fetal Alcohol Network Society is guided by the mission, vision, and values of identified core documents and continuously strives to be in alignment with and adopt their recommendations in our practices, policies, procedures, governance, and service delivery.
As such, all programs, agencies, and projects that receive funding from the Network and the Network itself are required to work towards adopting the same recommendations within the work that they do.
