The mandate of the Disability Insurance Program is to promote issues related to disability insurance and represent the interests of PSAC members through the provision of advice, representation and technical assistance to elected officers, staff and PSAC members regarding the interpretation and application of public and private disability insurance arrangements.
The program involves a wide range of subject matter including health/medicine, rehabilitation, compensation, legislation, stress and mental health, duty to accommodate, disability management, insurance practices, financial principles and so on.
However, the Disability Insurance Plan Board of Management, of which the PSAC Program Officer is a member, is a sub-committee of the National Joint Council which, in turn, is the assigned responsibility of an AEC Officer.
