B.C.’s NDP government has announced a $52 per month supplement for people on disability assistance over and above financial support they are already receiving.

So the British Columbians with disabilities will have a little more money to help cover the costs of transportation in the new year.

The new supplements will begin to flow on Dec. 20, and are estimated to cost the province about $70 million per year.

The province is also creating an annualized bus pass for persons with disabilities (PWD), which will be available beginning on Jan. 1, 2018.
