First results from the 2017 Canadian Survey on Disability
The 2017 CSD was released by Statistics Canada (STC) on Wednesday, November 28, 2018. Among the products being released is an analytical article co-authored by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and STC which provides profiles of adults 15 and older with disabilities with respect to demographics (e.g., disability rates), employment, and income. This article provides a first snapshot of adults with disabilities using the 2017 CSD. More in-depth analysis of these and other issues will be conducted over time. This article represents the first public release of new data on poverty among persons with disabilities since the August 21, 2018, release of Opportunity for All: Canada’s First Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) using Canada’s official poverty line (based on the Market Basket Measure).

Premiers résultats de l’Enquête canadienne sur l’incapacité de 2017
L’ECI de 2017 a été publiée par Statistique Canada (STC) le mercredi 28 novembre 2018. Parmi les produits qui ont été publiés, il y a un article d’analyse rédigé conjointement par Emploi et Développement social Canada (EDSC) et STC qui esquisse des profils sociodémographiques des adultes handicapés âgé de 15 ans et plus (p. ex. les taux d’incapacité, l’emploi et le revenu). Utilisant l’ECI de 2017, cet article donne un premier aperçu des adultes handicapés. Une analyse plus approfondie de ces profils et d’autres questions sera effectuée au fil du temps. L’article constitue la première diffusion publique de nouvelles données sur la pauvreté chez les personnes handicapées depuis la publication, le 21 août 2018, du document intitulé Une chance pour tous : la première Stratégie canadienne de réduction de la pauvreté, selon le seuil de pauvreté officiel du Canada (fondé sur la Mesure du panier de consommation).

The E-Vulnerability Index
Some segments of the population are likely to experience financial, attitudinal and/or skill-based barriers when using government’s online services. These so-called “e-vulnerable” individuals will need different kinds of support to answer their needs. In light of this, Service Canada remains committed to providing an in-person option for service delivery throughout Canada (known as the in-person point-of-service “footprint”). It is important, therefore, that Service Canada has access to measures of e-vulnerability to inform its Service Delivery. To answer the need of information on e-vulnerable population segments, Service Research Division within ESDC has developed an index of e-vulnerability (EVI) for each of the Service Canada Center (SCC).
