Stepping Stones

"Stepping Stones Support Services” providing a delivery model based on the needs of First Nations communities for five member First Nations including: Kettle and Stony Point, Aamjiwnaang, Chippewas of the Thames, Munsee-Delaware and Moraviantown


Formed in 2007 by five First Nations in the area. They are:

Aamjiwnaang First Nation , Chippewas of the Thames, Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point, 

Delaware Nation (Moraviatown) & Munsee-Delaware Nation.

The five First Nations agreed to form a group delivery model for the delivery of the Ontario Works program. Stepping Stones is a non-profit agency which is governed by a Board of Directors who is appointed by each participating First Nation. Stepping Stones Support Services Program is in accordance with section 38.1 of the Ontario Works Act and maintains responsibility within the geographical areas as defined by the boundaries of the First Nations.

With this model, First Nations maintain their Ontario Works designation and deliver both the financial and employment assistance component of Ontario Works. The staff remains employees of the First Nation. Stepping Stones maintains the responsibility to provide accountability to the government for reporting, including audit requirements and ensuring the integrity of the program at the community level.
