Registered Disability Savings Plan Survey from Employment and Social Development Canada 

Disability Alliance BC has received the following notice about a survey from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) about the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP):

ESDC is evaluating its RDSP program for Canadians with disabilities. Part of this evaluation involves asking people who do not have a RDSP why they do not have such a plan, and how they save for the future in other ways.

Even though you may not have a RDSP, your opinion about saving money for the future is important to this research. Information gathered from this survey will be used to improve the savings plan program for all Canadians with disabilities.

A Canadian research company called R.A. Malatest & Associates Ltd. is managing the Survey of Savings for and by Persons with Disabilities on behalf of ESDC. If you would like to answer the survey, please contact Malatest at 1-855-412-1942. If you have a hearing disability, you can contact Malatest using a teletype (TTY) relay service by dialing 711 first. If you have other questions about the research, you can contact Malatest via email at:
