CACL Policy Position on Family Income Security

Families supporting a family member with an intellectual disability must have the supports and services necessary to assure the full inclusion of their family member. Including a family member with intellectual disabilities within the family unit must not negatively impact a family’s economic security and financial well‐being. An inclusive and accessible Canada recognizes that families are the fundamental unit of our society and that families provide an essential bridge to the realization of citizenship and the full inclusion of their family members with disabilities.
