Nain Enhancement Program

The Community Enhancement Employment Program for people who need more hours to qualify for their Employment Insurance Benefits is going well in Nain.

Sarah Erickson is the Inuit Community Government AngajukKak.

She says 6 people are still employed and adds that 1 crafts person has just started work.

Erickson says in about a week and a half some workers will have finished getting their hours in.

These workers made kamotik boxes, push boxes for babies, garbage boxes, carvings and sewing crafts from sealskin.

The Community Enhancement Employment Program is provided by the Provincial Government and was started last October in some communities.

So we hope to get more news on how well this program is going for the other communities next week.
