The Tsawout Social Development program is funded by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). Our goal in Tsawout is to increase employment opportunities for employable clients and provide guidance in securing employment. We understand that the national poverty rate in aboriginal communities is three (3) times the national average. We provide services in a compassionate environment and work to empower clients and their families. INAC guidelines have been implimented since are implemented and Tsawout has had successful program reviews each year.

- Reinvestment Programs
- Family Violence
- Employment & Support Inititiatives(TESI)

Tsawout advocates on behalf of families involved with Niltuo or the Ministry for Children & Family Development.
