Kaitlyn will be among a panel of experts from academia, advocacy and legal practice who will discuss their insights on “Clawbacks and Constitutional Issues” on the Canada Disability Benefit Act and provincial support programs, long-term disability insurance plans, and motor vehicle insurers.
The program will explore broader issues of the Canada Disability Benefit Act, such as the role of cooperative federalism and how the proposed regulations might address difficult policy questions.
This program will aim to cover all topics including:
- Implications of income-testing or linking the CDB to “employability”
- How key terms such as “disability” and “poverty” might be defined
- Potential effects of clawbacks from other support programs
- Human rights and access to justice issues in future application and appeal processes
- Whether the CDB can be considered a social benefit, an income benefit, or something else
Attendees will range from lawyers in government, in-house, or private practice to academics interested in Social Security, Disability and of course members of the Disability community and Disability advocacy groups.
