B.C. non-profit organizations submit recommendations to province to improve life for the disabled

Over the last few months, the provincial government has been consulting on issues impacting people with disabilities. CLAS, BCCPD, Inclusion BC, BCANDS, CMHA-BC and SPARC BC have prepared a joint submission and made six recommendations to help make BC a progressive place for people with disabilities.

The recommendations include:
1. Provide disability supports using a person-centered approach
2. Provide adequate disability income supports
3. Support access to safe, secure and accessible housing for people with disabilities
4. Support employment and social inclusion in a meaningful way
5. Do not eliminate current disability-based supports in an effort to simplify the system
6. Allow vulnerable families to benefit from child support payments
