Email the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services

Every year, the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services receives input from British Columbians on issues affecting them and what the priorities should be for the next budget. This year, when the all-party Committee released their report, we were shocked and disappointed that for the first time in many years, they did not call for an increase to welfare and disability rates. On a positive side, they did include over 25 recommendations that fit within the seven pillars of an accountable, bold and comprehensive poverty reduction plan. We had created an email tool to encourage the Committee to call for an increase to welfare and disability rates and to advocate for their existing recommendations.
