Pass Bill 6: Before it’s too late!!

Category: Social Assistance ReformSocial Policy

It’s been fifteen months since Bill 6 (the Ministry of Community and Social Services Amendment Act –Social Assistance Research Commission– 2016) passed 2nd reading in the Ontario Legislature unanimously.  With only months to go before a provincial election, time is running out to send Bill 6 to committee and on to third reading to become law.

A grass-roots video by the Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction, which features real people in receipt of Ontario Works and ODSP and community advocates implores the provincial government to move Bill 6 forward…before it’s too late.   Please watch and then call or email your MPP to encourage them to support immediate action on Bill 6!
