odspaction.ca – listserve – ENDORSE THE DISABILITY DECLARATION
Created 2009-10-06.   By nancy

The ODSP Action Coalition is requesting individuals and groups to endorse our Disability Declaration.  The Declaration sets out some of the rights that people with disabilities have according to the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, and then states what changes the Ontario government needs to make to ODSP to fulfill those rights.  Although Canada has not yet ratified the Convention, the Coalition beleives it is important for people with disabilities and organizations that work with them to use it in articulating how and why their needs must be met.

To endorse the Disability Declaration, please send a message indicating your support to the Coalition co-chairs, Nancy Vander Plaats and Kyle Vose; by email: vanderpn@lao.on.ca [1], or by snail mail c/o Scarborough Community Legal Services; 695 Markahm Rd; Suite 9, Scarborough, ON M1H 2A5.  Please include your full name, address and organization (if any) on your message. If you have any questions contact Kyle at 647 885-9272, or Nancy at 416 438-7206.
