Black, Indigenous and racialized people are made especially vulnerable during COVID-19 because of systemic racism.

Prioritizing Black, Indigenous and racialized communities during the vaccine rollout is necessary and long overdue.

Social Assistance cheques are out. I'm not aware that $100 Covid19 payment has ended. Anyone else not receive it? I just moved to healtbier and safe housing and was greatly depending upon the extra help.
How is it legal for the government to deduct the gross amount of cerb off of odsp when we have to pay the taxes off it too? They are effectively taking the money twice?

Being eco friendly, and green it's nothing new to the people living of this lands with their ancestral knowledge, we should recognize the importance of indigenous culture in our efforts to clean energy
They need to improve on their knowledge base and stop giving incorrect information to clients.If you are not 100 percent sure of the answer just say so I will undertake a position that if anyone in need needs information (correct) I will definitely steer them away from this clinic.They have to realize that indigent and uninformed people are using their service and if relied upon, could have devastating consequences.I feel sad for those ones.
