As many of you already know, WAGS of SCI is heavily involved in caregivers rights and advocacy We are located in Vancouver, BC Canada, and have recently met with our MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) in the BC Government in order to advocate for paid spousal and common law caregiver support. The result of that meeting was positive, and we are now in line to meet with our Minister of Labour for British Columbia to discuss these outdated policies.
We have since written a letter of intent to our representatives, showcasing the very real issues in our community.
We encourage ALL WAGS of SCI to write similar letters to their government representatives advocating for local caregiver rights. This is the only way that change is brought forward - by people like us who want to change the way things are done.
