A consultation process will be conducted to gather input on the Income and Employment Support Act and Regulations (IESA). The legislation was proclaimed in 2004 and reflects a new approach for combining income and employment supports under one piece of legislation.
This relatively new legislation has implications for a large group of clients, stakeholders, advocacy groups, employers and community partners. It is necessary to consult with these individuals and groups to verify that the direction of the Income and Employment Support Act is still appropriate to meet the needs of people who require supports and benefits. It is also important to assess where gains have been made, where improvements are still needed and where gaps continue to exist in the legislation.
