Advocacy Description: 

Social Advocacy ensures that all people have equal access to the resources, employment, services and opportunities they require to meet their basic needs and to develop fully. The Advocate serves as a point of contact for citizen concerns with local, federal and provincial social issues. This is accomplished through individual consultation and referral and community education activities that enhance public knowledge of governmental and community processes and activities.

Common Social Concerns:

• Housing, including Landlord/Tenant issues
• Human Rights
• Employment Standards
• Family Issues including Custody and Maintenance
• Poverty, and Financial Assistance
• Gender Equity
• Health

In addition, the Advocate provides consultation and education to groups and organizations, and facilitates citizen participation on social justice issues in this community. The advocate also engages in community social planning activities that facilitate collaboration between, and development of, programs that address social issues. The Advocate does not provide legal services, but can make referrals to appropriate legal professionals.

There are also programs to aid with Housing and Tenancy issues.
