On May 19, 2020, a new BC Essential Visitor Policy was announced. Congratulations to all the people who worked hard for this change and to the BC government for taking appropriate action.

Since the rest of the provinces have not yet incorporated recommendations outlined in the Include-Me letter-writing campaign, it remains open. You can send your letter at: https://www.include-me.ca/covid-19/action/essential-support-persons-people-disabilities-medical-settings
Thanks to all who have pushed for change, and to those who continue to do so. We are making Canada accessible, together.
