For The
Year Ended March 31, 1963



Reference has been made in previous years to the Centralization Programme which is administered by the Social Assistance Division. Financial assistance may be granted to a maximum of $600.00 per family in order to assist families to move from isolated settlements to a more centralized area where public services, schools, medical care, etc., are more readily available.

No assistance may be granted to an individual unless the head of the household of every family living in an isolated community signs a petition agreeing to move and requests financial assistance from this Department. The regulations state that assistance may be provided any family who moved from an isolated settlement not more than two years before the signing of the petition.

The cost of this Programme from April 1, 1962 to March 31, 1963 was $92,433.67. The number of families assisted during the period was 99. There has been a total of 1,256 families assisted since the Programme commenced in January, 1954. It will be noted that the number assisted last year was far less than the year previous even though 13 settlements were abandoned from April 1, 1961 to March 31, 1962 and 11 settlements were abandoned during the year just past. The population of the settlements moved in 1961-62 was much larger than that of the settlements abandoned in the year 1962-63.
