Fix Functional Assessments

February 23, 2017

Petition

To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:

WHEREAS   older Ontario drivers and those recovering from certain medical conditions are currently forced to undergo Functional Assessment procedures in order to see their driving privileges reinstated, and

WHEREAS   the fee for Functional Assessment services can be over $800, far beyond the budget of a fixed-income household, and

WHEREAS   Functional Assessment services for residents of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry are     delivered in Ottawa or Smiths Falls, over 1.5 hour’s drive away, and

WHEREAS   the Ministry of Transportation should focus on ensuring Ontarians can access mandatory testing services locally, and

WHEREAS   rural residents need prompt, efficient local service for driver license examinations and reinstatements in order to fulfill daily necessities such as working,  buying groceries and attending medical appointments,

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, PETITION

THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO AS FOLLOWS:

 

  • To work pro-actively with health providers located in the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry to guarantee the delivery of Functional Assessment services within their jurisdiction
