OXARO assumed the management and administration of the NNC claims processing in 2015. To achieve this, our team was responsible for implementing a leading solution, including a web-based tool for claims management.
Nutrition North Canada (NNC) is a food subsidy program to promote healthy food options for northern communities. The program subsidizes nutritious foods, traditional and country foods such as arctic char, caribou, and muktuk, and other staple items. NNC provides the subsidy directly to retailers, suppliers, and country food processors that have met the program’s requirements and registered with NNC by signing funding agreements with the Department. Funding Agreements with retailers and suppliers set out the responsibilities for program accountability and transparency. Over 100 northern communities are eligible for the full subsidy. In turn, community residents can benefit from lower purchasing prices.
OXARO operates the NNC food subsidy program which is supported by our web-based portal This application enables recipients to submit monthly claims for subsidies. These subsidies are based on the eligibility of an item and its shipping weight. The program also subsidizes the costs of shipping northern foods which are commercially produced.
