How to build a federal benefit from the ground up

Wednesday, November 8th
11:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

As we look at how to better support caregivers in Canada, we should learn from current federal benefits and how they came to be to inform what we do next. This panel will examine two contemporary case studies - the Canada Caregiver Credit and the Registered Disability Savings Plan - from the perspectives of those who were instrumental in the design and advocacy for these important programs.
