Assuring Income Security and Equality for Canadians with Intellectual Disabilities and their Families

The income security and labour market status of Canadians with disabilities and their families requires urgent action.  As a society we all have a role to play in ensuring we are building inclusive communities where Canadians with disabilities are welcomed and valued as active citizens.  The Federal government can take concrete steps to support building an inclusive and accessible Canada for all. The federal government has the tools and the capacity to make a true and lasting difference to the income security and equality of Canadians with intellectual disabilities and their families.  This can be done in a way that promotes their social and economic well-being and that of communities across Canada, and at the same time contributes to Canada’s labour force and productivity challenges.  The time is now.
