Hello, my name is Elisa. I have just started volunteering, working with Disability Without Poverty initiative that is trying to get the situation that allows people like me and others with disabilities to have a living wage and to reach their full potential.
Living with a disability can teach you a lot of things; how to adapt where others may see an obstacle, knowing that you might have to navigate a path that looks different than anyone else, and that’s OK. However, there can be struggles that are a little more difficult to discuss, for example, when you consider the idea of disability and poverty.
our three actions
To make the Canada Disability Benefit a reality, we need:
- A united disability movement
- The support of all Canadians
- To work closely with federal, provincial and territorial governments
