Provincial/Territorial Social Assistance Disability Programs

Programs at the provincial/territorial level that provide financial assistance for persons younger than age 65 who have disabilities that prevent them from working at any job on a regular basis. Most programs provide income support as well as vocational assessment, vocational rehabilitation, job training and other types of employment-related support that help people eventually prepare for and obtain suitable jobs. Once eligibility for the program has been established, recipients may be able to draw upon other programs that provide additional benefits, e.g., items such as assistive devices and medical equipment and supplies, or clothing allowances for dependent children.
