People living with disabilities in Canada have felt the sting of the director’s comments as they struggle to get through their own day-to-day challenges, made all the more difficult with the latest lockdowns. This article explores the negative impacts individuals with disabilities have faced throughout the pandemic, especially with regards to financial support, and how the Canada Disability Benefit could make a significant difference in their lives.
