Yesterday, the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, reintroduced legislation in the House of Commons that would establish the framework for a new Canada Disability Benefit. If approved by Parliament, the Canada Disability Benefit will become an important part of Canada’s social safety net, alongside Old Age Security, the Guaranteed Income Supplement and the Canada Child Benefit.
