Victoria – Starting with the September 20, 2017 cheque, people on income assistance and disability will receive an additional $100 a month.

The new monthly rates will be $1,133 for a person receiving disability assistance and $710 for a person on income assistance.

Today’s lift comes only days after the new government created a new ministry and parliamentary secretary tasked with reducing poverty in B.C.

“Raising the rates is only the beginning. Our government is committed to bring forward a comprehensive poverty reduction plan to lift children and families out of poverty,” said Premier John Horgan.
