Disability expert resigns from federal advisory group over benefit program

  • Michael Prince, a professor at the University of Victoria, resigns from Disabilities Minister Kamal Khera’s advisory group, expressing deep disappointment in Canada Disability Benefit. He believes his impact is minimal.
  • The Canada Disability Benefit, with $6.1 billion allocated over five years in the federal budget, offers a maximum annual benefit of $2,400 per person. Advocates criticize it for not adequately supporting 1.2 million Canadians with disabilities in poverty.
  • The benefit program is deemed inadequate by advocates as it is expected to reach only 600,000 individuals and won't be accessible until 2025. Prince criticizes the program for limited coverage and complexity.
