On May 27, Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction (MSDPR) Shane Simpson presented DABC’s Myung Lee with an AccessAbility Week proclamation plaque in recognition of DABC’s work in the disability community. He emphasized the work we have done through our Tax AID DABC program, which we operate thanks to funding from MSDPR, and in partnership with other organizations across BC. DABC Board member Elizabeth Lalonde was also in attendance.

DABC thanks the Province of BC for this honour.
