ARCH's Submission to the Social Assistance Review Commission
ARCH comments on Discussion Paper 2: Approaches for Reform released by the Commission for the Review of Social Assistance in Ontario. The Commission has a significant mandate to make recommendations to the government to reform social assistance in Ontario. The Commissioners state that it is clear to them that they need to transform the social assistance system significantly. The Commission must now submit recommendations and an action plan for reforming Ontario's social assistance system to the Ontario government by June 30, 2012. It is very important that the Commissioners hear from people with disabilities from the perspective of their lived experience. ARCH gratefully acknowledges the meaningful input provided to us by our clients with disabilities and our community partners to inform our submissions. Read ARCH’s submissions here.
