Our Vision for Canada

The Every Canadian Counts Coalition envisions a Canada where all Canadians feel included regardless of the abilities or needs they live with. Being included means being able to participate in Canada’s social, economic, cultural, and political spheres as much as possible.

To be able to participate, Canadians living with long-term disabilities require a variety of different and essential day-to-day supports and services such as adapted housing, attendant care, and medical devices.

Canada needs a national disability supports program that:

  1. Delivers essential disability supports to every Canadian who needs them—no matter how old they are, where they live, or how much income they have.
  2. Is fair, effective, and transparent.
  3. Is designed in collaboration with Canadians living with disabilities as well as the individuals and organizations that provide care and supports to them.
