Ms. Catalina Devandas-Aguilar (UN) End of Mission Statement

Catalina Devandas-Aguilar

At the conclusion of her mission to Canada, the UN’s expert on disability rights expresses ‘extreme concern’ concerning the failure of Canadian governments (incl. Nova Scotia) to ensure adequate community-based supports for persons with disabilities. She was also critical of the idea of making individual families file their own human rights complaint.
