Social Development Department
The Pictou Landing Band Council’s Social Development Department administers AANDC’s Income Assistance Program in providing funding to assist eligible individuals and families who are ordinarily resident on-reserve with basic and special needs services that are aligned with those provided by the province to its residents.
This assistance may include the following:
• Basic needs of food, clothing, shelter, utilities and personal essentials
• Essential household items (i.e. Fridge, stove, bed) and repairs to such
• Household supplies
• Comfort allowance for band members hospitalized or institutions for special care
• Basic supplementary diets
• Maternity allowance
• Funeral and burial expenses
The Income Assistance Program also funds the delivery of pre-employment supports to increase self-reliance, improve life skills and promote greater attachment to the labour force. With the combined services from Pictou Landing Band Council’s Employment & Training Department (METS/ASETS), Income Assistance clients have a greater opportunity to increase their quality of life.
The Income Assistance program provides funding to assist eligible individuals and families who are ordinarily resident on-reserve, with basic and special needs services that are aligned with those provided to other residents of the province following the eligibility criteria of the province.
