New Laws Promised for Seniors and Disabled; Parties Speak Out on Access and Inclusion

Nova Scotia has the highest rate of disability in the country, averaging at one-fifth of the population. This number typically does not include the increasing number of seniors, many of which often age into disability. So the numbers, in effect, are much higher, and they will continue to increase.

If the Parties vying to form the government think the current pressures of public policy are challenging, wait till they see what will happen if nothing is done to address the needs and challenges of aging and disability.
