Residents have the opportunity to provide input on the next phase of the City of Grande Prairie’s Integrated Coordinated Access (ICA) initiative on February 19 and 20.

Service providers, outreach workers and frontline workers in the area of social services, as well as the general public are invited to attend the engagement sessions to provide feedback on the proposed Integrated Coordinated Access design model and guide efforts to coordinate services across Grande Prairie.

The first session takes place on Wednesday, February 19 from 3:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m. at Teresa Sargent Hall in the Montrose Cultural Centre.

The second session will have an Indigenous focus and takes place on Thursday, February 20 from 1:00 p.m.- 3:00 p.m. in the Ernie Radbourne Pavilion in Muskoseepi Park.

Each of these sessions will feature a report back on what the consultants have heard from previous community engagement, a walk-through of the proposed process of coordinated system navigation, and an opportunity to provide feedback and share more ideas.

The consultations are open to everyone in the community and no registration is required.

About Integrated Coordinated Access

Integrated Coordinated Access (ICA) is a process that ties together hundreds of independent programs, organizations, and services in Grande Prairie into a coordinated system to serve the community more efficiently. The goal of this initiative is to make it easier for people to navigate social services, increase knowledge about where and how to access help when they need it, and to increase the efficiency of service delivery in Grande Prairie.
