Congratulations, and an open invitation to all MLAs to join us, meet and talk about ideas, issues and solutions
Members of the Disability Action Hall wish to congratulate you as a Member of the Legislative Assembly on your recent appointment as an MLA for the people of Alberta. We would like to take this opportunity to extend an open invitation to meet with us and talk about issues and solutions affecting persons with disabilities in Alberta, some of which include:
Alberta government should continue the review of Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD) Services to ensure Albertans are able to access services and supports they may need.
Affordable Transit Fares
The Alberta government should renew its commitment to fund the low-income transit pass in both Edmonton & Calgary and continue the rural public transit pilot projects to ensure Albertans can get around our province
Continue to improve income support programs
We are very thankful the Alberta legislative assembly unanimously approved indexing AISH and Alberta Works every year to reflect the current cost of living.
Create an Accessible Act for the Province
By 2035, 1 in 5 Albertans will have a disability. Albertans need universal standards to help people access the community, create accessible buildings, jobs and services
We look forward to you contacting us and talk more about the Alberta government priorities in the near future and ways we can work together.
