All in-person data collection for FEHNCY is currently on hold to comply with the physical and social distancing recommendations issued by the provincial and federal governments. The FEHNCY team will be starting online key informant interviews in the fall, 2020 and will continue modifying the project methods, timeline, and protocols in collaboration with First Nation partners to adapt to the current circumstances. We are committed to resuming all FEHNCY activities when it is safe to do so and when participating First Nations are ready.
