Advocacy Access Program


Highly trained advocates assist people with disabilities to apply for and appeal the denial of provincial disability benefits (PWD, PPMB), health goods and services, and BC Housing. The program produces free self-help guides for the public and manuals for advocates. We also facilitate free legal clinics twice weekly and conduct workshops for the community.
