Since 1989, the Advocacy Access Program at Disability Alliance BC has been a place of support, information and one-to-one assistance for people with all disabilities.
Each year our advocates assist hundreds of people in our office to apply for and appeal the denial of provincial and federal (Canada Pension Plan [CPP-D]) disability benefits. We help hundreds more over the phone and by email. We also help other organizations across BC to assist people with disabilities through our workshops and published information.

Our workshops are free of charge and can be tailored to your needs.
Advocates conduct workshops across the province to share information on provincial and federal disability benefits, advocacy and to teach self-help skills.
