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.
So, to achieve our vision, Canada will need a program that can deliver these essential disability supports to every Canadian who needs them no matter how old they are, where they live, or how much income they have. Canada needs a national program that is fair, effective, and transparent – and that’s what the ECC Coalition plans to design.
A national disability supports program would have a number of benefits that our current provincial and territorial programs can not offer. Learn more about each of these benefits by clicking on the links below.
