The Government of Canada recently introduced legislation to create a new Canada Disability Benefit. Below we have included an excerpt from the news release as well as some helpful links. Canadian’s are encouraged to join the conversation on the design of this new benefit!
“In the spirit of “Nothing Without Us”, the Government of Canada will build on the legislation introduced today to engage with stakeholders and persons with disabilities to have their voices heard on the design of the benefit leading up to the development of regulations. This engagement has already started with the recent launch of the Disability Inclusion Action Plan, a public survey that asks Canadians how the Government of Canada can build a barrier-free country. Engagement activities will continue through the summer and fall.”
