The Government of Canada is making it easier for Canadians to apply for the Canada Pension Plan disability program

The government has highlighted an important change to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) disability program, in support of their commitment to improve delivery of programs and services for all Canadians. Starting today, treating nurse practitioners can provide patients with medical evidence required by the program. Nurse practitioners are now able to independently complete the initial medical report included in the application kit for CPP disability benefits, as well as the medical forms associated with the automatic reinstatement and reassessment of CPP disability benefits and the Disability Vocational Rehabilitation Program.
