Pandemic Help From Chief and Council

On April 24, a month after a State of Emergency was declared in Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation, Chief and Council announced a one-time financial assistance payment of $200 to each NCN

The support is meant to help all Citizens as they face job insecurity, health fears and the need for higher standards of nutrition and hygiene. People also received cleaning supplies and some basic food staples.

“This period of self-isolation, travel restrictions and social distancing has been difficult for everyone, we understand,” said Chief Marcel Moody. “While it is not much to some people, $200 can go a long way to restocking basic necessities such as groceries.”

So many NCN employees and volunteers went above and beyond to make this initiative possible. From administration who created the Citizen lists (Yvonne Hart, Melissa Moore and Crystal Linklater), to community consultants serving as off-reserve distributors (Annette, Monica, Fonda, Crystal and Vernon), to our delivery crews of selfless volunteers, Chief and Council are proud of the way Citizens are stepping up to deal with the stresses of this pandemic.
