The AFCS assists the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) when required to take part in work that focuses on national and international issues and federal government matters. Such topics the AFCS may be asked to respond to include: health, social, education, employment and training, youth, women’s issues, justice and nationhood. Since it would not be feasible for the NAFC to conduct research at a local level across Canada, the provincial and territorial associations including the AFCS facilitate the province wide initiatives.
