Dozens of Liberal MPs have written directly to Minister Freeland calling for the Canada Disability Benefit to be funded in the 2024 budget. This is a big moment to build more public pressure - add your name to the petition now

Though the the Canada Disability Benefit (CDB) was promised by Justin Trudeau over 3 years ago, we’re now hearing from allied groups that the CDB won’t be funded until 2025. This will mean another year without life saving support for the disability community. This is unacceptable. 

The government has made no moves to honour its commitment to fund the bill with the urgency needed to address the disability poverty crisis,
but this is our chance to force their hand. 1,2  We have a narrow window as the government makes crucial funding decisions. Kamal Khera – the newly appointed Minister of Diversity, Inclusion and Persons with Disabilities – and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland will be deciding the fate of the CDB soon.

We need to showcase a groundswell of public support for funding the CDB with urgency – so the CDB doesn’t get caught behind red tape again. Sign our petition now calling on Chrystia Freeland and Kamal Khera to fund the Canada Disability Benefit now.

Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland and Minister Kamal Khera

Fund the Canada Disability Benefit now without delay.
