A Petition to End Disability Poverty

As one of the many who are part of the Disability Without Poverty movement, we are focused on ensuring that the government follows through on its commitment for a Canada Disability Benefit.
On June 22nd, 2021, the Government of Canada tabled legislation to create a Canada Disability Benefit. In order to increase momentum, Disability Without Poverty has initiated a petition calling on the Government of Canada to keep the Canada Disability Benefit as a national priority.
The parliamentary petition is calling for:
  • Fast-tracking the design and implementation of the Canada Disability Benefit
  • Active and genuine involvement of disabled people every step of the way, from start to finish
Let’s get as many signatures as possible! Here are some ways you can help:
  • Share the petition on social media
  • Send this email along to all those you’re connected to (networks, individuals, local groups, etc.) and encourage them to sign
  • Include this petition in an upcoming newsletter or blog post
  • Don’t forget to sign the petition, yourself!
The petition deadline is January 11, 2022.
Together, we can make a bold statement for a future filled with dignity, independence, and opportunity for people with disabilities.
