who have children with special needs

The projects are available to members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the Union of Postal Communications Employees (Public Service Alliance of Canada). The Special Needs Project is geared to families with young children; the Moving On Project is for adult sons and daughters with special needs.

As announced in Budget 2011, the Government of Canada is inviting stakeholders to comment on the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) to ensure that RDSPs are meeting the needs of Canadians with severe disabilities and their families.  
 
The review will seek input on a number of important topics that are crucial to the success of the RDSP. These include issues related to establishing plans, accessing plan savings, plan termination, and the administration of the RDSP program.
 
As part of the review, the Government of Canada has released a consultation paper. For a copy of the paper, and to learn more about how you can provide feedback on the RDSP, please visit the Department of Finance Canada website at: http://www.fin.gc.ca/n11/11-103-eng.asp <http://www.fin.gc.ca/n11/11-103-eng.asp>

Please note that written submissions to this consultation will be accepted until December 16, 2011.
