The NDP are pushing back after the PC’s aim to redefine what it means to be disabled.
Minister of Children, Community and Social Services Lisa McLeod has announced Ontario will adopt the federal definition of disabled.
The federal version defines a disability as someone who is unable to ever work because of it.
NDP Social Services Critic Lisa Gretzky says this move will make the lives of vulnerable Ontarians worse.
She says some Ontarians previously covered who are able to occasionally work, will no longer be covered under the Ontario Disability Support Program.
