Mandate Letters for new BC Cabinet Ministers

BC’s new government was sworn in last week. Premier John Horgan issued mandate letters to his ministers this week. Board Voice is working hard on the There is a Better Way: A BC Framework for Wellbeing project and we hope to meet with the new ministers soon to discuss a social policy framework for the province. Many of the policy areas, that the BC NDP intend to address, can be covered in a coordinated fashion through a framework. Issues ranging from homelessness, the opioid crisis, and the treatment of children in care to education, health care and homes for seniors – policy based on the social determinants of health, with built in accountability structures, in a social policy framework, will help us to achieve progress on these issues.
