Poverty Reduction and Disability Income

The disability income system is an agglomeration of disparate programs that were designed for distinct purposes. That reality would not actually be a bad thing if at least all the pieces worked well together. A new Basic Income for persons with disabilities would enable the reform of both the disability income and supports components of the equation. Ideally, it would contribute significantly to poverty reduction in Canada. This paper was presented at a roundtable discussion on poverty organized on December 8, 2016, by the Pearson Centre for Progressive Policy. It will be included in a summary report to be published by the Pearson Centre.
