Version imprimable

Faced with the challenges experienced by people with disabilities in Canada and Quebec, the federal Liberal government presented measures to support them. The government has since embarked on a new allowance modelled on the Guaranteed Income Supplement for Seniors program. This article goes over a survey that was conducted to find out the support and need for the benefit by the disability community. “We must act: remember that more than 40% of poor people in Canada are disabled,” contextualizes Guillaume Parent, national director of the movement Le Handicap sans Poverty.
