On November 23, 2017, the Minister of National Revenue announced that the Disability Advisory Committee is being re-instated.
From the release on the Government of Canada’s website:
“The Committee will be a way for the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to connect with a wide range of stakeholders and take their views into account as we administer tax measures for people with disabilities.
The Committee’s core role will be to provide advice to the Minister of National Revenue and the Commissioner of the CRA on the administration and interpretation of the laws and programs related to disability tax measures administered by the CRA, and on ways in which we can take into consideration the needs and expectations of the disability community as well as increase awareness and take-up of measures for people with disabilities.
The Committee will advise the CRA on how we can better inform people with disabilities and various stakeholders about tax measures and important administrative changes.
The Committee will also review the CRA’s administrative practices and make recommendations on how we can enhance the quality of our services for people with disabilities.”
