We work with our community partners on current and ongoing issues that impact people with disabilities.
This work can include raising public awareness, education, law reform and building community support.

Community Living Crisis
A coalition of organizations, including DABC, have made recommendations to protect and improve supports for adults with developmental disabilities.
Time for a Poverty Reduction Plan in BC
More than 200 organizations and community leaders have
joined together to call for a comprehensive poverty reduction plan with legislated targets and
Guide Animal Act
For years, DABC and other disability organizations have been gathering information on the shortcomings of the current Guide Animal Act and preparing a workable alternative.
Part 7 Accident Benefits
DABC is advocating for long overdue change to Part 7 of the Insurance Motor Vehicle Act.
Part 7 Benefits ensure that British Columbians who are injured in
automobile accidents receive rehabilitation services and wage benefits
to compensate them while they are injured. Part 7 also provides death
benefits to families for funeral expenses and lost income.
DABC is working closely
with the Woodlands survivors in their struggle for justice and
compensation. Woodlands School was a provincial
institution that provided residential care between 1950 and 1996 for
thousands of children who were deemed to have mental disorders.
Equipment and Assistive Devices
According to Statistics Canada surveys, most British Columbians with
disabilities struggle to find the personal supports that they need.
Since 2006, DABC has been part of a coalition of community
organizations working to address this unmet need. See also the Personal Supports Page.
DABC, along with the Coalition Against No-Fault (CANF) and the Trial
Lawyers Association of BC (TLABC), are seeking a new wrongful death act
in British Columbia.
