Mr. Speaker, I thank the hon. member for a very good question.
Our government is very committed to meeting the needs of Canadians with disabilities and to helping them get back into the labour force because that is what they want.
As a matter of fact we are moving on all fronts. I would like to draw her attention in particular to an agreement that the Government of Canada and the provinces have reached on new employability assistance for persons with disabilities to replace the old VRDP.
We have added $70 million per year in measures to recognize the extra costs of disability and an opportunities fund of $30 million for disabled persons who want to work.
