DEBATES OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY (HANSARD) HOUSE BLUES

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 Morning Sitting

This is from Hansard in BC Leg member statement from T. Redies:

SELF-ADVOCATES OF SEMIAHMOO

T. Redies: The Self-Advocates of Semiahmoo is a non-profit organization funded by the Semiahmoo Society in South Surrey. Their mission is to further positive change by engaging the community in a variety of initiatives that help break down stigmas and physical barriers for people with disabilities.

In 2017, the Self-Advocates of Semiahmoo were included in the third-year progress update for the Accessibility 2024 action plan. This acknowledgment came because of their continued effort to make White Rock beach a more inclusive space by providing a by-donation rental program of beach wheelchairs for community members and visitors.

The members of this organization were also federally recognized for their work with the planned accessible legislation for Canada. Currently the Self-Advocates of Semiahmoo are diligently working with the city of White Rock to create accessible access points along White Rock beach.

Their ongoing initiatives also include presentations to local schools, focused on a program called Equally Empowered, which promotes the capabilities and strengths of people living with disabilities, as well as volunteering and teaching resilience in life.

I’m very pleased to highlight this very important organization which is promoting inclusion and understanding in our Surrey–White Rock community. I know that the self-advocates have been welcomed and embraced by our community wholeheartedly, and we are a better place because of them.
