Ontario Works Program

To date the social assistance program runs a Lunch program for elementary and high school students at the Health Center. During the Christmas Season we will be distributing grocery gift cards to every home in the community and will provide all elders and band members locally a turkey to be purchased at the local Valu-Mart in Longlac. Ginoogaming First Nation helped parents with back to school supplies for every student that attends Nimiki Migizi Secondary and Migizi Wazisin Elementary Schools. We also help new expected mothers with baby supplies, with a Baby Shower for every new Ginoogaming First Nation baby born. The Social program also runs a Homemakers program for elders on reserve with lending assistance with house hold chores such as cleaning, laundry, dishes, grocery shopping and the homemaker will escort the elders to doctor appointment in Longlac or out of town trips.
