Communities Need More Hours For EI

Inuit Community Governments (ICG) throughout Nunatsiavut are hoping to assist residents in receiving enough hours to qualify for employment insurance.

The five ICG offices have submitted proposals to the provincial government to help these people.

But there is no word from the province yet on whether or not the funds have been approved.

The funds come through the Community Enhancement Program.

This program helps people receive enough hours to qualify for employment insurance.

Each of the community governments have made preparations for if and when the funds are approved.

The ICGs have a number of people in line ready to go if the green light is given.

  1. This is terrible, terrible news.

    Nunatsiavut needs an effective Economic Development Strategy with action items, deliverables, and FIRM timelines to maximize the labour market participation of our beneficiaries.

    Does such a document and strategic vision exist?
