Canada Day will see some changes in Saskatchewan.
Here is what you can expect:
Social assistance reductions kick in: The province is reducing benefits to those on transitional employment allowance by $20 per month. Travel benefits for people in residential care are also being reduced. Although the province walked back some of its planned reductions to funeral services for those on social assistance, there will still be less money available than there was before the provincial budget. Benefits for low-income earners in need of chiropractic services are also being reduced.
