Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) has released a new simplified Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP-D) application package. The new application was developed in consultation with DABC and other community organizations.
This simplified application consists of a single form rather than multiple separate forms. The new form also contains more reader-friendly language and provides examples and tips to help guide people through the application process so that it is easier.
The new application form is also electronically fillable and allows applicants to save and retrieve information. This change will make it easier to complete the application over multiple sittings if required. In addition, nurse practitioners will now be able to complete and certify CPP-D medical reports on behalf of their patients.
The new application form is available on the Government of Canada’s website:
Disability Alliance of BC and inclusion Powell River are pleased with the introduction of these much needed improvements to the CPP-D application process. For more information about these changes please contact the DABC Senior CPP-D Advocate Ashley Silcock at 604-872-1278 or 1-800-663-1278.
Last Thursday inclusion Powell River held their Annual Summer Picnic under the Rotary Pavilion at Willingdon Beach. Numerous people from all over the community attended and enjoyed hamburgers and a variety of salads.
The zero waste initiative was present and was huge success with two Employment Services clients assisting the picnickers with the disposal of various items. A good time was had by all. Many thanks to Aaron Service and Supplies and Safeway for their generosity. We couldn’t do our events without the support from our Community Partners. Thanks to all the volunteers that made this year’s picnic a huge success! Hope to see you at the next inclusion Powell River event!

The inclusion BLOSSOM represents people gathering in triumphant celebration of the world they are creating. It is intended to honour origins and the amazing community collaboration that takes place when something enduring is created. With the opening of the ARC Community Event Centre, a new opportunity opens for creating an even more inclusive community. The ARC Community Event Centre is a stage to give voice to the unheard, for friends and strangers to gather, meet, converse, listen, and learn who we are and where we are going.
Celebrating the beauty of our own creation is the beginning of the journey to imagining a more inclusive community.
