Access Registered Disability Savings Plan

The Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP), introduced in 2007, is a powerful way for eligible people with disabilities to save for their long-term financial security. It also enables people receiving social assistance to protect assets and income. Through a new partnership with Plan Institute and the BC Aboriginal Network on Disability Society (BCANDS), we can:

- Help people who are eligible for the RDSP to apply for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC), a pre-requisite for the RDSP.
- Connect individuals who have the DTC to Plan Institute or BCANDS who will help people open an RDSP.
