The new Saskatchewan Employment Incentive will launch in early 2024, providing working families who have lower incomes with a monthly financial benefit, supplementary health benefits, connections to employment and housing supports.
The Saskatchewan Employment Incentive will be available to parents leaving income assistance programs for employment and will assist others to remain in the workforce and not require income assistance.
Working parents who have employment income of $500 per month may be eligible for a monthly benefit of $400, $500 or $600, depending on the number of children they have.
The Saskatchewan Employment Incentive will replace the Saskatchewan Employment Supplement and the Child Care Subsidy. Social Services will support eligible clients to transition to the new program over the coming year.
More information and details on how to apply will be posted to this page prior to the program launch.
