It means AISH and Alberta Works will no longer fall behind the cost of living and people can expect their December 19th AISH base amount cheque to now have the base amount of $ 1685 (instead of $1588).
|Albertans can expect their December AISH cheque to now be $ 1685!|
Here is chart to demonstrate the January 1st increase which will also be indexed to the cost of living every year!
We have been waiting for this policy change for many years and we think indexing income programs helps protect Albertans to live with dignity.
We just wanted to say thank you very much to the Alberta government for indexing social assistance! #raisetheratesAB indeed!
