Cree Hunters and Trappers Income Security Board

Acts and Convention

Following the agreement of the James Bay and Northern Québec Agreement, the Board shall exercise the powers and duties provided for by the Act respecting the Cree Hunters and Trappers Income Security Board (R.S.Q., chapter O-2.1).

The Minister of Social Solidarity is responsible for the administration of this Act. Every year, the Board reports its activities to the gouvernement du Québec and to the Cree Regional Authority.

In 1988, chapter 30 of the Convention was modified by Complementary Agreement No. 8, which included several changes, especially the introduction of maternity benefits. Furthermore, in 2002, the Complementary Agreement No. 15 introduced new amendments to the Program. Among the many changes, the daily allowance was increased and a new allowance was provided for days spent by beneficiaries in far harvesting regions.
