Participation Agreement


The Niigaaniin program has been mandated by the North Shore Tribal Council and the Chiefs and Councils of the member and served First Nations to pro-actively assist community members to improve their employability – specifically to pro-actively provide an effective “hand-up” rather than just a financial “hand-out” to clients – and, ultimately, to reduce the dependency rate. The Niigaaniin Program is also mandated to provide financial assistance of various types to community members lacking income as they work towards increased employability and independence from the need for financial assistance.
