We are pleased to confirm Carole James (Minister of Finance) announced
today that Home Share Providers across the province will be receiving an
increase in the 2019 provincial budget. This is a long overdue and a well-
deserved increase for Home Share Providers.
We want to take this opportunity to thank our members for your assistance
and valuable input. The COPCS executive has been working for the past
five years to bring our members concerns to CLBC and to the Minister of
Social Development and Poverty Reduction. Our concerns for shared living
rates were heard and addressed in today’s budget announcement.
The COPCS executive will continue to participate in the provincial Home
Share Working Group to improve the Home Share Program.
