Registered Disability Savings Plan Survey from Employment and Social Development Canada ESDC is evaluating its RDSP program for Canadians with disabilities. Part of this evaluation involves asking people who do not have a RDSP why they do not have such a plan, and how they save for the future in other ways. Even though you may not have a RDSP, your opinion about saving money for the future is important to this research. Information gathered from this survey will be used to improve the savings plan program for all Canadians with disabilities.
