Social Media Terms of Use

MFI walks hand-in-hand with Indigenous peoples as they lead the co-development of new approaches to education and well-being, weaving community-based knowledge together with the most current research and evidence-informed methods to ensure that Indigenous children, youth, and communities have the tools they need to reach their highest potential.

To further this mission, MFI and MFI’s staff and agents use social media—including but not limited to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram—to share information about MFI activities and information that may be of interest to the public.

These Terms of Use apply when viewing, interacting, or otherwise engaging with any of MFI’s social media channels (“Social Media”). By engaging with MFI’s Social Media, you acknowledge and agree to the following terms and conditions.
