Abstract

This paper discusses the disability programs that form the support system for disabled persons in Canada. The paper describes the trends in these programs between 1970 and 1996, as well as the plausible explanations for these trends and, where possible, the empirical evidence that establishes the relative importance of these explanations. In addition, there is also a discussion of the reform efforts that were implemented in the 1990s, which attempted to secure the financial viability of these programs. Finally, there is also a discussion of the need for additional program coordination and benefit integration in this support system.

Note: This is a description of the paper and not the actual abstract.
