Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network (PLAN) is a non-profit organization that proposed, researched, and campaigned for the RDSP. Plan Institute, which was born out of PLAN in 1999 and is now a separate organization, continues to track, advise and promote the plan.

Plan Institute worked with the provinces to accommodate the RDSP by raising asset limits and eliminating claw backs. This tutorial and website was created to provide families across Canada with the most accurate and up-to-date information available on the RDSP.

PLAN and Plan Institute believe that the RDSP has the potential to shift people with disabilities out of poverty and place significant resources directly in the hands of individuals with disabilities.
