Pathways to Empowerment and Support Program


The Kwanlin Dün First Nation Pathway to Empowerment Program (Pathways) offers tailored case management to all citizens receiving income assistance.

The goal is to:

  • achieve wellness
  • regain self-sufficiency, and
  • where possible, facilitate a return to employment.

Citizens work with the Pathways Coordinator to develop a Pathway’s Plan that focuses on the physical, mental, social, education, career, emotional and/or spiritual aspects of their lives.

This plan initiates a ‘Circle of Care’ approach that may involve participants in culturally based programs, re-connection with community, continuing education, referral or other supports that identify and remove barriers to wellness and healing.
