Training & Education


CFAN is advancing how we all understand and respond to FASD. We aim to reduce the incidence of FASD and ensure people affected by FASD can lead positive, fulfilling lives within a caring network of support and respect. With a better understanding of the causes and effects of FASD, systems, service providers and community members can respond to individuals and families with appropriate supports, expectations and strategies.

CFAN offers education and training specially tailored to meet audience needs.

Topics Include:


Prevention Conversation
