Biographical history

The Ministry of Human Resources was established in 1976 when the government renamed the Dept. of Human Resources (OIC 3199/76). The functions of the former Dept. of Human Resources remained virtually the same in this new department. The Ministry of Human Resources was responsible for all matters relating to social and public welfare and social assistance. The department provided the delivery of a broad range of social services and income security programs including income assistance, assistance to the handicapped and the elderly, child welfare services and residential services. In 1986, the housing function from the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing, was merged with the Ministry of Human Resources. With this change came a new name, as the ministry was now called the Ministry of Social Services and Housing (OIC 1501/86 and OIC 1502/86).
