RE: MS Society of Canada | Support for Barrier Free Canada
Dear Steering Committee members,
On behalf of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, I am pleased to provide full support of the call on federal Parliamentarians to introduce a Canadians with Disabilities Act to enact strong and effective disability legislation.
This is particularly important for Canadians affected by episodic conditions like Multiple Sclerosis who experience considerable difficulty accessing disability care, supports and services based on narrow definitions of disability.
We appreciate the leadership your committee is taking to advance the important principles of a Canadians with Disabilities Act.
