Income Assistance (Financial Help)

Social Services

Ombudsman Saskatchewan has jurisdiction over the Ministry of Social Services. If Social Services made a decision that you think is unfair to you, contact a manager and/or see if you can appeal. If you can’t appeal or your appeal is denied and you still think the Ministry was unfair to you, contact us.

Here are some more details.

Step 1

If you have a question or complaint about an income assistance program, contact the applicable program area at Social Services or the Regional Manager of your local area office.

Here are some of the phone numbers for program areas at Social Services. There is also more information on the Social Services website under Financial Help.
