Welcome to the Regina Anti-Poverty Ministry

The existence of poverty is shameful!
To be poor is not.

We advocate with and for people living in poverty.

We strive to educate and create systemic change..

 

  • Saskatchewan Income Support (SIS) was rolled out July 15, 2019, with the intent of phasing out past social assistance programs like the Saskatchewan Assistance Program (SAP) and the Transitional Employment Allowance (TEA). On August 31, 2021, the SIS program replaced remaining clients on SAP and TEA. The result is a reduction in benefits that were already grossly inadequate. Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) (created in 2008) remains in place.
