The SFNFCI Project team will be conducting Engagement Sessions in various First Nations communities in Saskatchewan to discuss the Income Assistance Program.

We will be engaging in focus groups and one on one interviews with selected target groups such as income assistance clients, general community members, elders, IA Workers, and Elders. 

Our goal is to gain as much feedback on improvements, hardships, resrouces and supports and to find out if the program is suited to the basic needs of the community. 

A blog of upcoming events will be made available as soon as community bookings are confirmed and will be posted in the hosting community. So please watch for the it!

If you would like to participate in an engagement session please contact your IA Admin Worker or give the project team a shout out. Lacey Kaysaywaysemat - 306 526 2566 email, Connie Kaysaywaysemat - 306 696 7119 email, Misty Kay - 306 373 2874 email
