The Government of Canada presented Bill C-35


The act is to reduce poverty and to support the financial security of persons with disabilities titled "The Canada Disability Benefit Act". (first reading, June 22nd, 2021). Will the benefit help you? Now is the time for you to let people know what it could look like.

Inclusion Canada Design Recommendations

To start, visit Inclusion Canada's website that created a plain language one-pager of recommendations of what the Canada Disability Benefit could look like. 
Link to One-pager.  

Inclusion Canada is just one of the many groups providing ideas. Another website to visit and register as an organization or individual is Include Me a disability-led movement by people with disabilities. You can watch videos and webinars and talk to people across Canada on monthly meet-ups.

If you already have ideas, you can also share your ideas with your local Member of Parliament (MP).Find your MP by postal code.
