OSPE - The Voice - May 2019 - 5

The odds of suffering from a disability
before age 65 are 1 in 3 1

Every day in Canada, 165 Canadians are involved in an accident
that leaves them partially or totally disabled.2

and psychological tolls, people who suffer from disability also
take a tough financial hit. After all, nearly 50% of mortgage
foreclosures are due to disability.3

productivity and other issues:2

Just the facts
about Engineers Canada-sponsored

about yourself or a close family member
becoming disabled - even temporarily
- is incredibly unpleasant. But the facts
will tell you that it's something to which
you should at least give some thought
- so you're prepared, just in case.
