Lori Slater goes to extraordinary lengths to support people with disabilities, volunteering about 1650 hours a year. For the past nine years, she has been on the cutting edge of all initiatives for disabled persons in the Fort St. John region. Chair of the Mayor’s Disability Advisory Committee, Peer Support Coordinator for the BC Paraplegic Association, Community liaison for Measuring Up the North program to improve accessibility, and an ambassador for Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion are among her volunteer activities. Her goal is to build awareness and change attitudes. Her influence is far reaching – she has made a dramatic difference ever since she began working to improve accessibility in her community. Lori is motivated and positive and never loses sight of her mission.
