We provide a wide range of community events and programs that connect individuals throughout our diverse communities.
Community Support Programs
Our communities and the people living in them are at the heart of everything we do at the County of St. Paul.
The following programs are available to support you and your family.
Community Support Programs
FCSS provides support and information for residents on the following programs: Meals on Wheels, Baby Wise Bundles, Mom's and Tots in Mallaig and Ashmont, Care Kits, and periodically offers Home Alone and Baby Sitting courses. FCSS administers Community Counseling throughout the year, and administers the Volunteer Income Tax program from March 1 to April 29 each year for qualifying residents.
Activities for Seniors
Seniors contribute their time to many causes in the community and FCSS extends appreciation to our seniors in a variety of ways. An annual Christmas recognition is held each year. We show our appreciation to seniors during Seniors Week each June with special luncheons held throughout the County. FCSS is there to assist seniors with their applications for Alberta Seniors Benefits.

Activities for Kids and Youth
Summer activities are planned for youth of all ages. The Free Summer Program for children aged 7 to 11 begins in July in Mallaig, Ashmont and Ferguson Flats. There are plenty of outdoor activities, crafting, daily field trips and fun team building. These activities are perfect for kids looking to make new friendships, create memories, and add some fun and excitement to their summer.
During summer 2022, FCSS hosted Drive-in Movie Nights, U-Rock (find a rock) in Elk Point, Ashmont, Mallaig and St. Paul, Science Day (Ferguson Flats), Mallaig Color Run, and a Block Party at the St. Paul Water Park.
