The theme for IDPD 2023 is “United in action to rescue and achieve the sustainable development goals for, with and by persons with disabilities”. These goals include: No poverty; zero hunger; improved health and wellbeing; gender equity; and reduced inequality. All which can be improved with a Canada Disability Benefit.
Join Disability Without Poverty to celebrate what went well, the challenges and the opportunities we faced these past 12 months. It has been quite a year! From getting Bill C-22 passed to launching Shape the CDB, our quest to get money into your pockets continues!
Disability Without Poverty is a grassroots movement led by people with disabilities with an invitation for all Canadians to join us in continuing to push the federal government to make the Canada Disability Benefit a reality now! We want people with disabilities to be prosperous, realize our power, pursue our passions and participate in every aspect of society.
