March 3, 2010 - The provincial government tabled its 2010/11 – 2012/13 budget and fiscal plan yesterday, revealing flat-lined budgets to Community Living BC (the Crown Agency responsible for supports and services for adults with developmental disabilities) and the Ministry of Children and Families (the ministry responsible for supports and services for children and youth with special needs).

At a time when new investments are crucially needed to keep people off of waitlists, this budget is empty of any commitment towards improving the lives of children and youth with special needs and adults with developmental disabilities in BC. Read the press release here.
