Mi’kmaq Wolastoqiyik Social Development Program
The impact from historical oppression by the government of Canada through broken treaties, the Indian Act and the forced removal of First Nations children has caused ongoing trauma and significant losses of culture and tradition in First Nation communities.
Because of this oppression, many First Nation individuals have experienced struggles that could prevent them from maintaining employment, educational training, etc. Our Mi’kmaq Wolastoqiyik First Nation Social Development Program is there to assist our members to meet their basic needs. Our vision and objective are to further improve the quality of life for our NB First Nation communities by supporting their well-being using a holistic approach.
The overall objective of the Mi’kmaq Wolastoqiyik First Nation Social Development Policy is to provide financial assistance to persons in need and to facilitate their movement towards independence and self-sufficiency within a healthy community.
Core objectives of this program include:
– assisting individuals and families to gain or regain self-support and to become self-reliant to the extent their individual circumstances permit.
