- 1980 - 1982
This series consists of a sample of Saskatchewan Assistance Plan (SAP) case files created and used primarily by staff of the Social Services Division of the Department of Northern Saskatchewan (but also the Department of Social Services, the Department of Welfare, and the Department of Social Welfare and Rehabilitation) between 1954 and 1982. Department staff created these files in the provision of financial assistance through the Saskatchewan Assistance Plan (prior to 1966 known as Social Aid) to residents of Saskatchewan in accordance to The Saskatchewan Assistance Act (and its predecessor enactment, The Social Aid Act). The series also consists of a small volume of Old Age Security Supplemental Allowance (OASSA) case file records. The OASSA program was discontinued in 1968 at which time recipients received assistance from the SAP and the federal Old Age Security Program.
No sub-series have been identified in this series.
