Bill

C-348: An Act to amend the Department of Employment and Social Development Act (persons with disabilities).

Second reading.

Vote

Nay.

Rationale

Our government has taken significant steps to support persons with disabilities, including being the first government to appoint a dedicated Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities. We've also proposed $12.1-million in Budget 2018 to improving service delivery for people with disabilities. Further, our government has been engaged in the creation of new accessibility legislation, involving extensive consultations with the disability community. Similar to Bill C-348, the work our government has been doing aims to end the piecemeal approach to programs, legislation, and services for people with disabilities.

Result

Defeated.
