For Immediate Release
- Canadians who become disabled and unable to work are unprepared for the financial hardships which are ahead of them.
- Few beyond the disability community have been calling for social policy reform that would eradicate disability poverty.
- Many born with disability live their whole lives in poverty, or long to become 65 because benefits are better for seniors.
