Some really interesting and exciting news was announced regarding a new federal benefit meant to support working-age Canadians with disabilities; recently, the Canada Disability Benefit Act received royal assent. As we know, financial stability and financial planning is so important for this client sector as their financial needs may exacerbate or vary over time, or as they age, or depending on the type and severity, of the disability. While much is still unknown about this new benefit (e.g., who will qualify, benefit amounts, etc.), read more to prepare for the effective date of the new law which will be no later than one year from June 22, the day the act, formerly Bill C-22, received royal assent.
