We provide workshops to community organizations, health care providers, businesses, and government.
DABC provides workshops across BC to share information on provincial and federal (CPP-D) disability benefits, the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP), Disability Tax Credit (DTC), and income tax filing.
Most of our workshops are provided free of charge. However, we ask that a minimum of ten participants be confirmed for all our workshops.

Our Tax AID DABC program provides workshops on simple income tax filing issues for people with disabilities, common tax filing credits, options for dealing with tax debt, options for filing your income taxes, strategies for communicating with Canada Revenue Agency, and other programs that can be accessed through income tax filing.
DABC advocates provide workshops on provincial disability benefits (Persons with Disabilities (PWD) and the Persons with Persistent and Multiple Barriers (PPMB) benefits), as well as federal disability benefits (Canadian Pension Plan-Disability).

The workshop can be tailored to the needs of the organization or group.
