The CDB – Bill C-22 – is back in the House of Commons. It recently passed through Senate after a long review process, with a series of amendments to strengthen the bill. [1] It’s time for the bill to become law so people with disabilities can receive the support they need to live with dignity.

Nearly 917,000, or 23%, of working-age Canadians with disabilities live in poverty, and the rising costs of living and housing have only made that situation worse. [2]

Trudeau first promised the CDB three years ago, and it’s been stuck in a bureaucratic loop since then. [3] If the House doesn’t accept the amendments, it will take months for the bill to go back through Senate once again. People with disabilities living in poverty can’t wait any longer to receive this life saving support.

The House breaks for summer in just a few weeks – we need to pressure MPs to pass the Canada Disability Benefit into law before then. Sign the petition now calling on MPs to pass Bill C-22 and the CDB so Canadians with disabilities can receive the financial support they need to live with dignity. 
 

Federal Members of Parliament
