Minutes from our meeting with Honourable Minister Todd Smith.

On September 20th 2019, the day of Ontario Disability Coalition (ODC) Queens Park rally “We are not red tape”, ODC advocates also had an opportunity to meet with senior ministry staff and the Honourable Minister Todd Smith. This was an opportunity for self advocates and their caregivers to share their hardships and experiences with Minister Todd Smith about growing up and living in Ontario with a physical and developmental disability.

They talk openly about why we need an Ontario Disability Program. Self Advocates open up, so we can move forward to a Barrier Free Ontario. Minutes for our meeting are posted below.
