As funeral expenses are an unexpected expense on family members and loved ones, the Board of Trustees developed the funeral program. The program allows the Timber Claim Trust to financially assist families with the funeral expenses and the purchase of headstones for Ginoogaming First Nation members. In 2008, the Board of Trustees amended the policy to increase the maximum payable to $6,000 per member.
It is unfortunate that we have lost some of our Ginoogaming members but assitance was provided through the Funeral program. Since 2004, the Timber Claim has assisted members in the amount of $118,686.70.
