BC Poverty Reduction Coalition Campaign Calling for Increase to Welfare and Disability Rates


As was released in our past newsletter, the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services released their Budget 2020 Consultation Report and corresponding Media Release. We were pleased to see a number of recommendations included in the report. However, for the first time in many years, the report did not call for an increase to welfare and disability rates.

The BC Poverty Reduction Coalition launched an email campaign to contact the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services to call for an increase to welfare and disability rates and to advocate for their existing recommendations.
