Recent Advocacy Effort
Advocacy Update: May 2018
Prior to the June election in Ontario, the OCC Research & Advocacy (R&A) Committee prepared an Election Toolkit to help members inform candidates about identified caregiver priorities. The R&A committee will now be following up with key elected MPP’s to encourage ongoing dialogue and interaction.
Click below for our In-Depth Brief submission that was sent to all political parties in Ontario in advance of the 2018 election. We are identifying improved financial support for caregivers and more flexible, self-directed respite options as key priorities of OCC members.
