Join us in a conversation with three experts on the proposed Canadian Disability Benefit to learn what is being proposed and what are our next steps as a community.
In the official government response, the Parliamentary Secretary, MP Irek Kusmierczyk, reiterated government support for the Canada Disability Benefit, saying the government intends to move forward as fast as they can. While Disability Without Poverty applauds this, we look forward to seeing the Canada Disability Benefit Bill tabled without hesitation – and we will continue to ask #WheresTheBill
“The Canada Disability Benefit is an important step to providing people with disabilities the independence, autonomy and dignity they deserve. We encourage all parties to move forward with its design, introduction and implementation without further delay,” states Michelle Hewitt, Disability Without Poverty Co-Chair.
