Additional living costs and barriers faced by families with children with disabilities: Em20-64/2017E-PDF

evidence from the Participation and Activity Limitation Survey (PALS - 2006) : technical report prepared for the Canada Disability Savings Grant and Bond evaluation /

“The Registered disability savings plans (RDSPs), the Canada Disability Savings Grant and Bond were first introduced in 2007 to encourage Canadians to save for the long-term financial security of a person with disabilities. The Canada Disability Savings Program (CDSP) became available to Canadians in December 2008. A Formative Evaluation of the CDSP was completed at the end of 2014, which focussed on the relevance and early directional impacts of the program. This study is a component of the Summative Evaluation designed to assess program performance on the continued need for the RDSP, the grant and bond and program performance. The current report is one of a series of quantitative reports using Statistics Canada surveys’ data for the summative evaluation. This study uses the microdata file of the Statistics Canada’s 2006 Participation and Activity Limitation Survey (PALS) to gather background information on families with children with disabilities as well as data on additional living costs and work-related issues for those families"--Executive summary, p. 2.
