We need your help to tell Members of Parliament (MPs) that the Canada Disability Benefit Legislation (Bill C-22) needs to be prioritized this fall.
We know that MPs listen the most to those who live in their communities. Can you spare 5 minutes to send an email letter to your MP, asking them to #TakeActionForMS and:
Prioritize the quick passage of Bill C-22 this fall
As inflation rises, it is imperative that the government do everything possible to deliver relief to those who rely on income support benefits
Make the benefit inclusive of episodic disabilities
The MS Society is advocating for the Canada Disability Benefit to be inclusive of people with episodic disabilities as defined in the Accessible Canada Act
Work with provinces/territories to ensure provincial/territorial supports continue
We need to ensure a new federal benefit doesn’t cancel out existing provincial/territorial benefits
