The Saskatchewan First Nations Family & Community Institute (SFNFCI) was pleased to be part of the Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) First Nations Income Assistance National Report Validation as a continued effort of First Nations-led initiatives. 


In 2019 Indigenous Services Canada put out a call to host a national meeting to validate the National report.  Saskatchewan First Nations Family and Community Institute Incorporated (SFNFCI) submitted a proposal and were granted the project to co-host a national meeting to validate the First Nations-Led Engagement on Income Assistance 2018-20, National Summary Report Draft report and facilitate a discussion on next steps.  


SFNFCI hosted a virtual meeting on Thursday January 14, 2021.  The report shares the planning and implementation details of the event and provides a summary of facilitated discussion with nine-teen Income Assistance representatives from five of the six regions invited. 


We would like to thank all those involved and whom participated in activities up to and during the meeting Jan. 14, 2021, your skills and knowledge are much appreciated and together we can do so much.
