Child support clawback is no more!

End the child support clawback!This campaign targeted BC’s government policy of taking off child support dollar for dollar from single parents’ income assistance benefit. By taking that money away, the provincial government deprived children living in lone-parent households – some of the most vulnerable children in the province – of their right to child support.

Thanks to the tireless work of community organizations such as BC ACORN, Single Mothers’ Alliance BC, Community Legal Assistance Society, West Coast LEAF and First Call: BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition and thousands of supporters, the clawback was finally put to an end in February 2015!
