Text of Bill C-22
Recently a report was published by the Parliamentary Budget Officer called The Canada Disability Benefit: Model and Scenarios.
Join Disability Without Poverty to celebrate what went well, the challenges and the opportunities we faced these past 12 months.
Canada Disability Benefit essential now as persons with disability live in deep poverty in the face of rising costs
On June 22, Bill C-22 became law. Where do we go from here? Join Disability Without Poverty to get the latest scoop. We want to update you on the current status of regulations, the question of budgeting for the benefit, and an update from DWP.
Today, after tireless advocacy from Canadians living with disabilities Bill C-22, the Canada Disability Benefit Act, received Royal Assent. The Canada Disability Benefit Act creates a new supplemental income for people living with a disability, which seeks to support financial security for a community that is twice as likely to live in poverty.
Over 275 community stakeholders and nearly 800 individuals have signed an open letter calling for Bill C-22 to be passed into law by June 2023.
