Welcome to the website of the Technical Advisory Committee on Tax Measures for Persons with Disabilities.

The Technical Advisory Committee was appointed in April 2003 by the Minister of Finance and the Minister of National Revenue to address issues related to tax measures benefiting persons with disabilities.

Response of the Government of Canada to the Recommendations of the Technical Advisory Committee in Budget 2005

On February 23, 2005, the Government announced in Budget 2005 that it would act on the recommendations of the Committee contained in its December 2004 report. The sections of Budget 2005 discussing the Government’s response can be found at the following links:

Following Budget 2005, the co-chairs of the Committee, Sherri Torjman and Robert Brown, sent a letter of acknowledgement to the Ministers of Finance and National Revenue regarding the Government’s response to the Committee’s recommendations. (The letter is available in HTML and PDF formats.)
