I first started my petition on Change.org back in November 2015 after writing a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau asking him to implement a National Assistance Program for Canadians with Disabilities. The purpose of the petition is to implement legislation that will provide all Canadians living with a disability with the equipment and services they require to live functional lives. This directly complements the impending Canadians with Disabilities Act (CDA)- which aims to create an accessible and inclusive Canada – as such a program would help to fulfill that purpose by providing the supports necessary to allow all Canadians living with a disability to contribute to society regardless of ability.
