The Loss of a Champion

Posted in: NBACL News

We at NBACL are truly saddened to hear of the unexpected passing of Minister Flaherty last week. He was a true champion of disability issues in Canada. The recent Ready Willing and Able announcement made by the Federal Government to invest in individuals with intellectual disabilities who are Ready, Willing and Able to work was a testament to that, as well as championing the creation of the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) and the Enabling Accessibility Fund to name just a few initiatives he was involved in.
Several years ago, Minister Flaherty wrote an article for CACL’s Coming Together newsletter titled ‘What heaven looks like.’ We encourage you to take a few minutes to read Minister Flaherty’s article as we reflect on his passing.
