Social Assistance Program
The Social Assistance Program (SA) aims to help those in need of financial assistance. The SA department developed an anti-fraud campaign this past year and there has been a ten percent decrease in Social Assistance cases. The encouraging statistics could be due to both the anti-fraud efforts as well as the recent surge in Kahnawá:ke’s economy. The Social Assistance program has also extended the Young Adult Employability Development Program, which seeks to help those on SA to become more employable.
The SA department also offers an Employee Enhancement Program, providing local businesses and organizations with partial salaries subsidies to assist their clients with work experience and a steady pay check.
