Social Assistance Rates

Income Support and Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) rates were recently increased and indexed to inflation (to account for year-over-year changes to the cost of living). The increase in asset limits of both personal and for childcare have been especially beneficial to families. These important changes introduced in January 2019 have already increased the financial stability of many low-income Albertans, including persons living with a disability.
