Fight against poverty

It is alarming to compare the current living conditions of the First Nations communities with those of the rest of the population.

It must be admitted that the funding system for the social programs intended for the First Nations does not seem to be adapted to today’s realities. The programs are underfunded and their objectives often do not meet the standards in effect in most of the Canadian provinces.  

This affects many essential programs in addition to creating a complex poverty situation that is too often persistent in the communities.

The FNQLHSSC develops and implements  different strategies to fight against poverty and social exclusion among the First Nations communities.
