Caring for All Canadians

This autumn the BC Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) will be urging the federal government to consider poor Canadians when it drafts Canada’s next budget. On behalf of seven organizations, the PIAC’s articled student Jess Hadley will be asking the government to earmark transfer payments for social assistance, affordable housing, and legal aid. She will also ask Parliament to implement a national drug insurance scheme, and to make the Disability Tax Credit program fairer. Caring for All Canadians report (in PDF) can be read online.
