Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons – An organization focused on promoting disability awareness in Canada.

If you are a person with a disability either in the workplace or looking to enter the workplace, this is an amazing interview.
"A Seat At the table" is an amazing initiative by The Canadian Foundation For Physically Disabled Persons. Advocacy takes on many layers, from the simpliest phone call, email or letter written, to organized lobbying and awareness campaigns.

Last weekend Vim Kochhar (chair of the CFPDP), wrote this great article in the Globe and Mail about the differences in opportunities for Persons with Disabilities not just getting jobs, but about getting the coveted jobs. Throughout the cfpdp.com website, you will find information and resources.

Temple Grandin (TV Movie 2010) - IMDb

The Autism spectrum is wide. Often, conversations around autism vary because of the huge variance of the spectrum. If you are looking for a movie to watch this weekend, one that tells the story of one autistic person's experience, I highly recommend this movie. It unpacks components and some behavoirs of Autism in a very entertaining way.

Directed by Mick Jackson. With Claire Danes, Julia Ormond, David Strathairn, Catherine O'Hara. A biopic of Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who has become one of the top scientists in the humane livestock handling industry.

Do you qualify for the Home Accessibility Expenses Tax Credit?
Are you:
■ You are 65 years of age or older?
■ You are eligible for the DTC?

Were the renovations for the main residence of the person who is 65 years of age or older or eligible for the DTC?

Were the renovations permanently part of the home and did they meet one of the following criteria:
■ allow the person to gain access to the home or be mobile or functional within the home?
■ reduce the risk of harm within the home or in accessing the home?

If so, the Home Accessibility Expenses Tax Credit may be worth exploring!

If you deal with a medical condition on a daily basis we can help you to ensure you know what benefits may be available to you. A professional consultation will help you understand your tax situation.
