Income Assistance (Welfare) – Province of BC

I’ve done these graphs for a single parent on Regular Income Assistance, Persons with Persistent Multiple Barriers (PPMB), and Person with Disabilities (PWD). I used the Before Tax Low Income Cut-Off Rates similar to what recreational facilities use to determine whether they will support someone in their community. The LICO rates show the problem lies with the provincial government or the BC Liberals. I plan to enter the 2014 LICO Before Tax Rates in the tables below to show the injustice the BC Liberals are doing to the most vulnerable BC citizens including children. Martin Luther King has said “An injustice anywhere, is an injustice everywhere.” This is clearly an injustice. Click here for BC’s latest Income Assistance Rate Tables effective October 1, 2017.
