The B.C. government rolled out some significant changes to welfare and disability benefits that will make it easier for recipients to earn some cash while collecting benefits.
The goal is help those on social assistance return the workforce and those with disabilities lead more independent lives, Premier Christy Clark said Monday morning.
"Our government is making balanced changes to remove barriers to employment for people who want to return to the workforce while providing adequate support for those most in need," said Clark, in a statement released by her office.
