Spring Harvesters Subsidy Program

Reconnect with the land.

Moose Cree First Nation understands the importance of getting out on the land. It is a time to harvest traditional food and reconnect with nature. With this in mind, we are pleased to offer the Harvesters Subsidy Program every spring and fall harvesting season. This subsidy assists with costs of travelling to camp, but is not intended to cover other expenses.

Spring 2020 Applications

The application deadline was Friday, April 17th, 2020 at 5:00 pm. We are no longer accepting applications.

In response to the pandemic, the previously posted guidelines will be waived for the spring 2020 program and all applications will be accepted. Also, helicopter assistance will be approved at the full return fare to and from camp.

Please contact the Interim Harvesters Support Program Coordinator by email at or by phone at 705-363-0698 if you have any questions.
