The Niigaaniin Program is an "active" social assistance program with an emphasis on providing support to First Nation Communities and their citizens. Our program is the implementation of the Ontario Works legislation with culturally appropriate provisions. Rates, eligibility and program parameters are established by the Ontario Works program. Our primary services include "Financial Support", "Employment Assistance" and "Life Skills". 

The Niigaaniin program strives to: 

  • Respect an individual's dignity. 

  • Enhance a participant's self-esteem. 

  • Encourage independence. 

  • Provide supports to help participants prepare for, find and keep jobs. ​ 

  • Provide culturally appropriate programs and services based on the needs of the participants and the realities of the local labor market within the community.
