Great new housing resource

  

SCI BC (formerly BC Paraplegic Association) has a new website dedicated to finding accessible housing.

Beyond the obvious listings there are resources on how to apply for housing while on PWD – see the guide – as well as a good primer on co-ops. Check it out: http://sci-bc-housing.ca/

Updated PWD Help Sheets

  

Help Sheets on Disability benefit related subjects are available from the B.C. Coalition for People with Disabilities       

For example… RDSP information, PWD Benefits, Health supplements, Trusts etc.

 

AT Home >> to PWD benefits

  

If your child receives the At Home Program, they can transition directly to PWD benefits with only a short form to fill out.  This is much preferable to the regular application process – however – some people you may speak to at MEIA, MCFD, CLBC etc. may not be aware that this option is available.
