The Community Wellness Policy is part of the Toronto Purchase Trust Agreement to provide financial relief for members through a reimbursement approvals application process, which should not be subject to taxation as income and should not impact on any form of social assistance received by MCFN members. This policy came into effect on April 1, 2011 and operates on the fiscal year from April 1 to March 31.

Provided there are sufficient funds through contributions from the Toronto Purchase Trust, this policy will remain in effect annually with the approval of the budget. This program is not funded by any government agency; it is solely funded by the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.

All Mississaugas of the Credit members eighteen years of age or older, regardless of place of residence, are entitled to receive a maximum of one thousand five hundred dollars ($1500) per year, as a reimbursement against receipts and/or invoices or estimates.  Types of expenditures, but not limited to, are:

Necessities of Life

  • Medical/dental/therapeutic/orthopedic and vision care expenses/equipment (not covered under other plans)
  • Property/building/maintenance/rent/transportation/housekeeping/personal care
  • Contractual services
  • Recreational, traditional and healthy lifestyle memberships and activities

Any person caring for a Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation member eighteen years of age or younger, regardless of place of residency, is entitled to receive a maximum of one thousand five hundred dollars ($1500) per year and per policy, as a reimbursement against receipts and/or invoices. Application forms (adult and minor child) are to be filled out and submitted with receipts. If a parent or guardian is submitting on behalf of a minor member, the proper documentation, including proof of legal custody in certain circumstances, and identifiable receipts or invoices for the minor member, are required.

When submitting an application in person, two pieces of ID must be shown such as: status card, student card, birth certificate, health card, driver’s license, etc.

When mailing in an application, photocopies of two pieces of ID must accompany the application.

All claims under this policy must be a minimum of at least one hundred dollars ($100) except in the case of the final claim.
