Kill Bill C-585

October 15, 2014

ICHA supports efforts to stop proposed new legislation that would deny refugee claimants access to social assistance. Bill C-585 is a private member's bill put forward by Conservative MP Corneliu Chisu that would  allow provinces to restrict access to social assistance for refugee claimants. As front-line health care providers to refugee claimants, we understand how important access to social assistance is for the health of our patients that are not yet able to work in Canada.
