The following is an open letter a delegation of 160 organizatiions, including PCLS, delivered to Minister Joe Oliver raising concerns about omnibus Budget Bill C-43.

Open Letter: Budget Bill Restricts Access to Social Assistance for Refugee Claimants

Dear Minister,

As organizations that have an interest in ensuring that everyone in Canada has equal access to income security, we are alarmed by the inclusion of sections 172 and 173 in your recently introduced omnibus Budget Bill C-43. These sections amend the Federal-Provincial Fiscal Arrangements Act and are essentially Private Members Bill C-585, which was introduced earlier this year.

About APT

The Alliance for a Poverty-free Toronto (APT) is a city-wide network of community groups, agencies, concerned residents and individuals with lived experience of poverty, working to eliminate poverty. The group promotes collaboration that includes not only community organizations and groups, but also government, organized labour, institutions and the private sector. In brief, we want to engage everyone in a united effort to tackle this problem and build a better city.

APT had its beginnings as a steering committee, the Toronto Working Group on Poverty, which came together after a community forum held in Toronto in June 2010 and has been actively involved in the community since then.
