The Basics of a Bill Webinar with Senator Brent Cotter – June 9th, 2022

Join Disability Without Poverty for a conversation with Senator Brent Cotter! Learn about the basics of how a federal bill is passed, what this means for a Canada Disability Benefit, and how we can ensure our voices lead the conversation every step of the way. Senator Cotter will also be joined by Greg McMeekin from the office of Alberta’s Advocate for Persons with Disabilities, along with Disability Without Poverty’s very own Michelle Hewitt and Rabia Khedr. Together we will explore how we can continue to push to make the Canada Disability Benefit a reality, now!

Don’t wait for this conversation to take action. Let’s make sure the Canadian Disability Benefit remains a national priority. Write to your local MP today using DWP and March of Dimes Canada’s tool, which sends an email to your MP in just a few clicks!
