Liberals Table Bill to Index Income Assistance Rates to Inflation

March 24, 2023 – (Halifax, NS)  

For the second year in a row, the Houston government overlooked our most vulnerable Nova Scotians by choosing not to increase income assistance rates in their budget.

Today, Opposition Leader Zach Churchill will re-introduce amendments to the Employment Support and Income Assistance Act which would index income assistance rates to inflation so Nova Scotians can keep up with the rising cost of living.
