Minister MacLeod also announced that her ministry will reveal a new social assistance program after a 100 day review. In this webinar, Jennefer Laidley and liz walker of ISAC review these decisions and many of the improvements that were slated for the Fall of 2018, as well as the government’s stated priorities for changing the social assistance system and what they could mean. The webinar looks at the kinds of principles that the government should use to create an effective and compassionate social assistance system. The webinar also discusses actions that each of us can take before November 8, 2018 to ensure the provincial government hears from us about what a good system should be.
