Who Benefits? How disability benefits are failing British Columbians

The BC Coalition of People with Disabilities has produced a paper entitled Who Benefits? How disability benefits are failing British Columbians (45 pages, in PDF) and a Summary (10 pages, in PDF). The paper examines four principle areas within the disability benefits system: benefits rates, the Persons with Disabilities benefit (PWD), the Persons with Persistent and Multiple Barriers to Employment benefit (PPMB), and service delivery and accountability. The paper includes personal stories from British Columbians who receive disability benefits and 16 recommendations, including one for a new disability benefits Act.
