Bill C-22 was approved by the House of Commons earlier this week and is now expected to be approved by the Senate later today or tomorrow and signed into law by the Governor General on Friday.
Government progress incomplete, as people with disabilities continue to struggle in deep poverty

Disability Without Poverty is encouraged by some positive signs from yesterday’s budget, which will bring the much-needed Canada Disability Benefit closer to reality.
Dear Members of the Senate, we ask that while you give Bill C-22 your full attention, you also ensure that it moves to Royal Assent with all haste.
