In general, provinces in the east had a slightly higher prevalence of disability than did those in the west.Among the territories, the prevalence of disability was 14% in Yukon, 8% in the Northwest Territories, and 7% in Nunavut.As part of the New Disability Data Strategy launched by Employment and Social Development Canada, the Canadian Survey on Disability (CSD), Statistics Canada’s new source of data on disability, aims to provide frequent, accessible, and timely information.Based on data from the 2012 , this report presents a profile of persons with disabilities aged 15 years or older and includes socio-demographic characteristics, such as age, sex, education, employment and income, and disability characteristics, such as severity of disability, the use of aids and assistive devices, barriers to transportation, and help needed with everyday activities.Among persons with disabilities, 19% had less than a high school diploma, compared with 9% of those without disabilities (Chart 7).The difference between the percentages of persons with and without disabilities who had postsecondary education below the bachelor’s degree level—41% and 39%, respectively—was not statistically significant.Data points within the section Highlights and section 3, Education as well as Chart 7 have been updated.
As a result, only half the population was included in the calculation of the chart’s data points. In Chart 7, Less than high school diploma or equivalent for those with disabilities has been changed to 20.0 from 18.7. High school diploma or equivalent with disabilities: 26.6 from 25.0. Postsecondary certificate or diploma below bachelor’s degree with disabilities: 39.5 from 40.5. University certificate, diploma or degree at bachelor’s level or higher with disabilities 13.9 from 15.7. In the Highlights section, the highlight on university degree at the bachelor’s level or above has been updated: While 31% of Canadians aged 25 to 64 years without disabilities had a university degree at the bachelor’s level or higher, the figure among those with disabilities was 16%.Consequently, the provincial and territorial prevalence rates were age-standardizedto the Canadian population.In Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Yukon the prevalence of disability remained above the national figure, and the prevalence in Quebec, the Northwest Territories, and Nunavut remained below the national figure (Chart 1).This report is intended to be a resource for non-government organizations supporting persons with disabilities, disability and social policy analysts, researchers, governments, and the general public.In 2012, almost 14% of the Canadian population aged 15 years or older—3.8 million individuals—reported having a disability that limited their daily activities.
