On December 3rd PLAN and PLAN Institute gathered with friends, partners, and supporters to celebrate a historic milestone.   After years of hard work, advocacy, and partnership, the Registered Disability Savings Plan became a reality on December 1st.  During the celebration there were speeches by Al Etmanski, President and Co-Founder of PLAN, MLA Claude Richmond, Jack Styan, Executive Director of PLAN, Vickie Cammack, Executive Director of PLAN Institute, and Rob and Kathy Bromley, PLAN Lifetime members. 

These speeches spoke to the power of the RDSP and the work that has gone into implementing the plan.  We also had some families come up and speak about how they see themselves using the RDSP when it becomes available.
