As a provincial federation of community organizations supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, we are keenly aware of the structural barriers faced by these organizations and the people they support. In an effort to communicate the insights of our members to those with the power to make structural change, we are writing a series of position statements outlining our federation’s stance on key issues facing the disability community. We will be releasing five position statements this year and requesting meetings with ministers to discuss our federation’s concerns and calls to action.

After extensive consultation, the first of these five position statements, focused on access to health and coordinated care is complete. This statement reflects our sector’s ongoing concern that people are falling through the cracks of our provincial health care system, and outlines ways that this intolerable situation could be addressed. We have developed both technical and a plain language version of the document. We have also sent a letter to Health Minister Adrian Dix requesting a meeting to discuss our collective concerns.
