Purpose: This report is required to provide statistics on both the Income Assistance (IA) program and the Enhanced Service Delivery (ESD) initiative program expenditures, clients and their dependants. AANDC uses the report for program planning and policy analysis, to determine statistical trends, to measure program performance and to ensure continuity of services in First Nation communities.

The purpose of the IA program is to provide financial assistance to eligible on reserve residents who have demonstrated a need for food, shelter, or other goods and services that are essential to the resident's well-being. The program is of last resort and provides funding when no other source of funding is available (from federal, provincial or other sources) to meet basic or special needs of residents on-reserve as stated in the Social Development National Manual.

In order to overcome challenges such as high dependency rates and passive delivery, the Government of Canada is now investing in the ESD initiative. The initiative is a streamlined approach to deliver Income Assistance on-reserve. It consists of a continuum of services and programming that aims at increasing a client's employability in order for this client to enter and remain into the labour force. ESD relies on case management through which potential income assistance client is guided throughout the continuum.

Report Description:

Part A – Recipient Information

Part A collects information on IA clients and their dependants, by family composition, age and sex. It must be filled by all organizations delivering IA, including organizations that also deliver the ESD initiative. In the case where two different people are responsible for providing information (i.e. IA Administrator vs. ESD Case Manager), both of them are required to fill out one report each of their respective section(s) of the report (i.e. Part A only or Part C only), as well as completing the declaration section at the end of the report.

Part B – Financial Management Report

Part B collects information on IA expenditures, shelter information, children out of parental home (COPH) and national child benefit supplement (NCBS).

Part C – Recipients under Enhanced Service Delivery (ESD) Only

Part C collects information on the ESD initiative that began in 2013-2014.
Note: Part C must only be completed by recipients who are specifically funded for ESD.

Reporting Period: All parts of the report must be filled out by all First Nations, whether they are under an annual or a multi-year funding agreement, every quarter (four (4) times a year). Unless otherwise noted, for totals related to clients, the number provided should be a point-in-time pulled from the last day of the quarter:

All financial related totals must be the total amount from the course of the three months that make up the quarter (i.e. month one expenditures + month two expenditures + month three expenditures = total amount of expenditures for the quarter).

Due Date: The report is due quarterly, on the 15th of each month following the quarter, for all funding recipients regardless of the agreement type and duration:
