Groups across Canada are forming to advocate for improved disability supports. There are common calls to end waiting lists for services and supports, increase the number of available housing options, and increase the salaries of support workers to attract more Canadians into these in-demand positions, amongst other things. This illustrates a widespread desire for change. More about these groups is below.
