Our Program

The Equal Futures RDSP Program is provided by Ability Tax and Trust Advisors, and generously supported by Vancity Credit Union. It is a social purpose program that provides an easy, efficient, and FREE service to eligible individuals to learn about, qualify for, and open a Vancity RDSP.

“The Government of Canada offers tax exemptions, income supports, social benefits and services to persons with disabilities to facilitate their inclusion, participation and independence in various aspects of life.”

– Government of Canada, 1st Report, Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities


Our Goal

The government sponsors a savings plan to help provide better financial futures for the approximately 4.4 million Canadians living with a disability. As the barriers to access the savings plan are extremely high, our goal, and that of our supporter Vancity Credit Union, is to create an accessible and free program to help individuals qualify and open an RDSP.

“Vulnerable groups, including people with disabilities, tend to have a lower standard of living than others due to factors such as low income, lower educational attainment, lack of affordable housing, and unmet needs for aids and devices.”

– 2010 Federal Disability Report
