The Disability Supports Deduction: A Big Small Step

Published on 25/03/2004

This commentary analyzes the impact of the new disability supports deduction announced in the 2004 federal Budget.  Persons with disabilities who are attending school or working will benefit through greater awareness, lower income taxes and higher disposable incomes.  They may even become eligible for some benefits for which they had not previously qualified.  Additional disability-related and other social policy measures are assessed in Caledon’s forthcoming response to the 2004 Budget.
