Who Should I Write To? – Advocacy Contact List

My Project 10-001Public programs depend on government funds – and those making decisions about provincial and local budgets don’t know how programs are working unless someone tells them.

If you appreciate the services you receive and would like to see them expand (or do something better), let our province’s decision-makers know your thoughts!

If you’re on wait lists and aren’t getting what you need, they need to hear about that too.

If you’d like to write a letter and aren’t sure of the format, you can start with this Sample Letter and change it to suit your situation.

We suggest writing to:

  1. The media.  In particular, watch for stories about autism and respond with letters to the editor, or on social media.  It’s good to have a variety of voices sharing their perspectives.  Do consider, though, what you are willing to share in the public sphere.
  2. Politicians.  One letter can actually go a long way towards getting people to think differently about needs.  Elected officials realize that one letter represents the opinion of hundreds of people.  And if you’re worried about privacy, letters to politicians don’t get shared anywhere but in their offices.
