Petition to the Ontario Legislature to Support Families by Eliminating Waiting Lists for the Passport Program Now!
We have been asked to share this petition with our families. A mom has started a petition drive to end the passport waitlists for children who once they turn 18 lose their funding. All signed petitions should be delivered by mid-February to Office of MPP Lisa Gretzky, Unit 5—321 Tecumseh Road East, Windsor, Ontario N8X 2R5. The petition states:
|To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
WHEREAS: When children living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities turn 18, support from the Ontario government drastically changes
WHEREAS: Families in Windsor-Essex and across Ontario are met with continuous waiting lists when trying to access support under the Passport Program
WHEREAS: Waiting lists place enormous stress on caregivers, parents, children and entire families
WHEREAS: All Ontarians living with ASD and other developmental disabilities are entitled to a seamless transition of services
Please sign and share this petition as this is an issue that affects many families!
