Disability Without Poverty‘s demands are:
- Bill C-22 for a Canada Disability Benefit needs to be passed into law this Spring 2023
- People with disabilities must be engaged in designing the benefit and implementing it in their province
- Fund and rollout the Canada Disability Benefit in 2023. Funding must be adequate enough to lift people with disabilities out of poverty
