Sample Letter to Member of Parliament

Dear << Name>>: 

Re: Request for the reinstatement of the Disability Advisory Committee

I am asking you to support the Disability Tax Fairness Campaign requesting the Ministers of Finance and National Revenue to reinstate the Disability Advisory Committee (DAC) to help correct serious problems with the administration of the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The DAC was created by the Liberal government in July 2005 and became a powerful voice advocating on behalf of all Canadians with disabilities to improve transparency and ensure tax fairness. Unfortunately, this important committee was disbanded by the new Conservative government in February 2005 and it has become more difficult for me (or family member) to access the DTC.

You may wish to add or include one or all of the following in your letter:

Ask your MP to write to the Ministers of Finance and National Revenue on your behalf and forward copies to you.


Hon. Bill Morneau, Minister of Finance
Hon. Diane Lebouthillier, Minister of National Revenue
Hon. Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities
