In the first part of the meeting, Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant speaks on her private member's bill (C-462) to restrict the fees charged by consultants who assist Canadians in applying for the disability tax credit. Forming the second panel of witnesses are Carmela Hutchison, Disabled Women’s Network of Canada; Dr. Karen R. Cohen, Canadian Psychological Association; Akiva Medjuck, National Benefit Authority; Dr. Paul Okorofsky, The Disability Benefit Group; and Shawn Anthony, TaxWise Inc.
