Parent Link

Parent Link is an initiative by Alberta Human Services, with more than 50 Parent Link Centres established throughout the province. Lac La Biche Parent Link is based at the Bold Center, but has recently expanded to include programs in the hamlet of Plamondon and other areas of Lac La Biche County.

Parent Link’s purpose is to support and inform parents and caregivers, while helping young children with their personal development. Up-to-date information on programs can be found on Lac La Biche Parent Link’s Facebook page.
