Childhood Disability (without) Poverty

May 12, 2023 @ 9:00 am - May 13, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

This family-led event will explore the intersection of familial poverty, childhood disability, and health outcomes. It will create an opportunity for families, health care professionals, and policy researchers to come together and share both their knowledge and lived experiences on equal footing to identify where we can partner to effect systemic change. Childhood disability is known to have a huge financial impact on families and children.

Disability Without Poverty is a movement, led by people with disabilities supported by our families, friends, service providers, allies and organizations. Right now, our priority is to build consensus toward a federal Canada Disability Benefit that would ensure income support above the poverty line for people who live with disabilities. This is a free forum held over two days.
