DABC joins community partners in calling on the Ministry to provide crisis supports for income assistance and PWD recipients

DABC has joined with other advocacy groups to call on the provincial government for additional support for people who receive income assistance and disability assistance during the COVID-19 crisis. Specific asks include temporary exemption of EI and the newly announced federal Emergency Support & Emergency Care benefits from clawback, as well as increasing availability of crisis supplements for all income assistance and disability assistance recipients.
