Implementation of Ombudsman's Report Needed

BCCPD Urges Implementation of Ombudsman’s Report

The March 2009 release of Ombudsman Kim Carter’s report Last Resort: Improving Fairness and Accountability in British Columbia’s Income Assistance Program completes a long process that started in 2005 as a result of the community’s concerns about BC’s income assistance programs.

The BC Coalition of People with Disabilities (BCCPD) congratulates the Ombudsman for her report and recommendations which we know, when implemented, will greatly improve BC’s income assistance programs.
