If you have a disability or care for someone who does, there is a good chance disability assistance is available to you through the Canadian government. However, it’s not always an easy process to secure the money you’re entitled to. Many individuals face a number of challenges when processing disability claims — most of which can only be avoided with expert knowledge of government disability programs.
Expertise in understanding government disability programs is what the National Benefit Authority is known for. Its knowledge of disability claims and successes in processing them effectively comes from years of experience. Without the advanced understanding the National Benefit Authority offers, requesting the money you are entitled to can be difficult.
This is why Disability Living has a blog category dedicated to discussing government programs. While there is no way to secure the expertise that disability specialists acquire from years of service, Disability Living is passionate about keeping you informed on current happenings in federal and provincial government. By staying up-to-date with news and events affecting the disability community in Canada, you have the option to develop your own expert knowledge in this area!
All blogs under the “Government Programs” category focus on federal and provincial disability programs, new funding initiatives, and the latest government released statistics relevant to the disability community in Canada.
Like many Canadians with disabilities, you may find yourself referencing government websites, looking for assistance. Often times, individuals go to Service Canada for information about the Canada Pension Plan. Another popular site is Persons with Disability Online, where one can learn more about national efforts to accommodate people with disabilities throughout the country. These are some of the first domains visited when seeking information about disability benefits — but they usually aren’t the last.
While these websites are organised and maintained well, they offer a lot of cut and dry (and not to mention confusing!) information without much inspiration. In fact, it’s common for people to feel discouraged after visiting these government resources. This is why Disability Living strives to provide fresh and enjoyable content pertaining to government programs.
As an advocate for people with disabilities, Disability Living is interested in understanding current happenings in federal and providential governments and will stay active in connecting you with the benefits they offer. This is why the blog is excited to serve you with positive news, promising to relay only the most important information in an intriguing and easy-to-understand matter.
In addition to serving you with valuable information, Disability Living is always happy to read the articles that matter to you. Send a comment on one of the blog posts mentioning your latest news interest (make sure to include a link). In effect, the blog will produce stories about what matters to you.
While all governments are far from perfect, they offer many benefits for people, especially people with disabilities. The more information prepared in an understandable and intriguing manner, the better prepared constituents will be to get involved. This will extend benefits assistance beyond the financial aspect and lead to a barrier-free Canada.
