|You have until December 21 to provide your input into one of the most important federal disability initiatives in many decades, the Canada Disability Benefit (CDB). Please don’t miss this opportunity.
The forthcoming Canada Disability Benefit is intended to provide a monthly benefit to adults with disabilities over and above whatever provincial benefits they might be receiving. This is an entirely new benefit we hope will begin to roll out in the near future. Right now, as this benefit is being designed, the federal government is wanting your input.
You can provide your input through a variety of means identified on this federal government website: Canadians Invited to Provide Input on the Design of the CDB.
We are hoping as many people as possible will complete the survey. To assist you, we’re providing some information below for you to consider in responding to a few of the survey’s questions. We have not provided suggestions for every questions as some are either obvious or less consequential. However, there is one point not covered by the survey and this is to ensure the provincial government does not reduce AISH or in any other way clawback the CDB so every Albertan with a disability receives the maximum benefit to which they are entitled.
