Disability Savings Grant and Bond

Our Canadian finance department recently implemented a plan to help persons with disabilities providing us with the ability to save and receive contributions from our federal and provincial government. The plan applies to persons who receive the disability tax credit for permanent/prolonged disability.

It is a great program which is long overdue and those of us would have been waiting for this type of program are disqualified if older than 49 years of age. I believed our Canadian Charter of Rights protected Canadian citizens against discrimination based on sex, color, creed, or religious beliefs, disabilities etc. etc. well age was in there somewhere but for some reason it does not appear to apply to this particular program.

I have written several letters and will post the responses I receive on this blog however if you are under 49 do not wait to apply for this program. To find out more information about this program follow the following link at the bottom of this topic.

If you're over 49, tough luck you are SOL, but please write a letter to the finance minister voicing your concern.

Now doesn't that make you feel all warm and fuzzy?
