Update from Social Assistance

In light of recent closures, the Social Assistance Office will be operating at reduced scheduled hours. Effective March 17, 2020, our office will be closed to the public, but our staff is available by phone from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Our office will be open to clients on Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to assist with social assistance applications. 

Please note that the following measures will be put into place until further notice:

  • Social Assistance clients are advised NOT to bring in their monthly declaration card.  This will not affect your monthly allowance and the deposit will be done for April 1, 2020 (as scheduled);
  • Clients scheduled for a re-evaluation during March do not have to come into our office. In-person meetings will be rescheduled for a later date.

We encourage everyone to please stay safe and keep healthy. For more information, please call 418-788-2909 between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.
