Ten Things to Know About Social Assistance in Alberta
I’ve just written a blog post about social assistance in Alberta.
Points raised in the post include the following:
-It’s very difficult to quality for social assistance in Alberta (this is also the case in all other provinces and territories). Reasons why are discussed in this previous blog post of mine.
-In the 1990s, there were changes to the rules governing social assistance in Alberta. From that point on, it became even harder to qualify for social assistance in Alberta.
-In Alberta, persons experiencing homelessness are not eligible to receive some forms of social assistance.
