Another reminder that nothing should be in the accessible parking space except a vehicle with a valid permit. Snow piling in a designated accessible parking space is not only unethical but dangerous for someone with a disability. ❄ https://t.co/5bMPT5IZFTRead More

Who We Work With
Through these five focus areas, we’re committed to supporting Indigenous people, community organizations, seniors, people with disabilities and all levels of government, including First Nations.
How We Do It
We start at the beginning. We gather comprehensive data about BC communities and use it to identify needs and gaps in the social safety net. Working with local governments and communities, we create plans to meet those needs and effect genuine change.
