Independent Living Resource Centre

Have you been contacted by Handi Transit to investigate the safety standards of your wheelchair? Are they asking to come into your home to take pictures and to document your mobility device? Demand that you be treated like a citizen. Be sure you get the right information and appropriate notice before choosing to allow inspectors into your home.

Click here for the statement of recommendations from ILRC to the City of Winnipeg regarding Handi Transit service in Winnipeg. This document represents a part of ongoing negotiations with the City of Winnipeg but do note that most recommendations have not yet been agreed to by the City. ILRC and the community continue its work with the Manitoba Ombudsman to provide fair and equitable service for citizens with disabilities. Stay tuned for further updates.

SFMC Quick Tip of the Day

Employees who work on Remembrance Day are paid for at least half of a normal work day at 1 1/2 times their regular wages. For example, employees who work two hours on Remembrance Day, but normally work an eight-hour day, are paid four hours at 1 1/2 times their regular wage. In addition, employees also receive a regular day’s pay for working on Remembrance Day, or 5% of their gross earnings in the 28 days before Remembrance Day if their hours vary. Employees who work more than half their normal hours on Remembrance Day are paid 1 1/2 times their regular wage for all hours worked, plus a regular day’s pay.
