First Nations individuals in financial need and living on Halalt reserve, may receive income assistance to cover the costs of basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter and health benefits. Financial need is determined through an income test and other eligibility requirements.

If you need assistance please call the office to set a time to meet with our Social Development worker.

In order to qualify for Income Assistance, you must not be entitled to Employment Insurance. You must also complete a 3 week work search prior to applying.

Once you qualify to apply, at the initial meeting you will need 2 pieces of ID, one with a current photo, as well as a bank statement, and a current hydro bill.
