Study: The dynamics of disability: Progressive, recurrent or fluctuating limitations
The conventional view of disability is a limitation that remains more or less permanent and unchanged over time. However, many disabilities may not follow this relatively stable pattern. In fact, of the 6.2 million Canadians adults with disabilities in 2017, 3.8 million (61%) experienced limitations that changed in some way (otherwise known as disability dynamics), while 2.4 million (39%) experienced continuous limitations that tended to be more stable over time. To mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Statistics Canada is releasing four new products based on findings from the 2017 Canadian Survey on Disability.
