Forms part of Fonds 3. Series consists of case files and records pertaining to the administration of municipal aid in the Rural Municipality of Charleswood. Municipal aid included such services as social assistance, child welfare, and hospital aid. The scope of the RM's responsibilities with regards to these services was largely defined in provincial legislation (Social Assistance Act 1957, Hospital Services Insurance Act 1958, Social Allowances Act 1959, etc.) and in other places like by-law 1495 (RM of Charleswood). Common record types include correspondence, applications, legal records, reports, statements, relief schedules, and account sheets.
Records appear in four groupings. Case files appear first, followed by records related to general administration; reports, statements, schedules, etc. (records created in the process of seeking financial reimbursement from the Province); correspondence; and account sheets removed by creator from general ledgers. For privacy and access reasons, sensitive correspondence was removed by archivist from the Subject Files series and placed in the Municipal Aid series. Files belonging to the City of Winnipeg removed.
