BC Election officially begins today - make your vote count!

The writ dropped in BC today, marking the beginning of a 28-day election period. As political parties campaign across the province, seeking your vote, we're giving you the tools you need to put issues important to people with developmental disabilities and their families on the election agenda.

Election day is Tuesday, May 9.

Help us build a province where we all belong.

Our BC Election 2017 Toolkit contains information fact sheets for you to take to your local candidates. Find your local candidates here.

Let your local candidates know that these issues are important. Share the fact sheets, ask the questions. Whether it's in person, by phone, email or social media, your voice and your vote count.

Let us know!
