The recent federal budget addressed accessibility to the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) for adults with developmental disabilities. This is good news for other provinces and territories. It is not a concern for British Columbia.

In BC, adults may make a Representation Agreement under section 7 (called RA7 for short) and avoid the piecemeal and temporary solutions as seen in the federal budget 2023. There are many other benefits to the RA7 – not just access to the RDSP. Groups in other provinces see BC’s RA7 as a model.
