MFIS Office is moving! This June, we are sadly saying “goodbye” to Balmoral Hall School which has been our home for the last 13 years.

Changes with the expansion of the school led us to our new office which will be located at the Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute campus at 173 Talbot Ave. The office will be moved by the end of June.
