Since the release of the Commission’s second discussion paper, ISAC has been reviewing the paper in detail to both provide information on what the paper says, and to craft the best response possible by the Commission’s March 16 feedback deadline.
To create a response that addresses the issues that affect groups that deal with the most disadvantage in our economy and in society, we’ve been working with partners in the community legal clinic system and community partners with concerns around the impact of social assistance on people with disabilities, women, members of racialized communities, and newcomers.
We are still hosting meetings with our community partners, but have reached the point at which we can share draft elements of our submission to the Commission. While some aspects of these documents may change, we hope that that they will be of assistance to others who are writing their own submissions to the Commission.
