Statement on COVID-19 Vaccine Access for Disabled People by Dignity Denied and BCEdAccess

We understand that decisions about vaccine priority are being made, in part, based on input from advisory groups and disability organizations. However, we are aware that little data has been collected around how COVID-19 affects disabled people as a demographic. In addition, we are concerned that the quality of data that is available and being used to support these recommendations is of poor quality, and may in fact be of little value.

Back to School – 8 things you can do to prepare your child with special needs

Find out when that first day is – will your child be attending on the first day of school? Often schools will ‘suggest’ that your child may be more comfortable attending a few days or even a few weeks later instead, and sometimes you won’t find this out until very close to the date. And some families choose a later transition because they know that this is what will work best for their child.

Media release: Canadian government set to pass (has passed) Bill that attacks rights of disabled people on the anniversary of Canadian government ratifying UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities

And now, instead of a chance to catch our breath and remember a document that says our lives and rights are important and should be supported and respected, the Canadian government is determined to communicate they aren’t and won’t be.”
