Kahnawà:ke Social Assistance Program (KSAP)

Onkwe’tà:ke akoia’takehnhátshera To provide financial assistance to individuals and families living on reserve, according to set standards and other eligibility criteria, and to provide services which will permit them, and their dependents, to maintain good health, a sense of security and family unity.


  • Kahnawà:ke Social Assistance (Basic and Special Needs)
  • Employment Enhancement Program

The KSAP focuses on a collaborative Case Management approach that creates a more individualized model of service delivery.  The goal is to support the development of Kahnawa'kehró:non, and not only be a last resort financial assistance measure. KSAP’s role is one of a catalyst for the individual, mobilizing Kahnawà:ke organizations to play a part in the development of the potential of the individual.

KSAP establishes two different last resort programs, one for beneficiaries who have some limitations in their capacity for employment (Financial Support or Unavailable) and the other for those who may be able to re-enter the labor market (Available, Participant).  Also offered is the Employment Enhancement Program to local business and organzations with KSAP contributing to the salaries of clients.

Our clientele consists of residents of Kahnawà:ke who are temporarily unemployed or not enrolled in education or training measures. However, our collaborative approach with Tewatohnhisaktha promotes our clients to enroll in various employability development programs.
