These programs are funded by the Ministry of Justice and are offered free of charge to the public. Referrals can be made by parents, caregivers, or professionals. Children and teens, 15 years old and younger, will need parental consent to participate in the offered services. Teens aged 16-18 do not need parental consent and can refer themselves. All referrals can be made by calling or e-mailing the Envision Counselling and Support Centre in Estevan.
