Private insurance is readily available if you want a nest egg to top up your salary to or over 100%.

I’m not sure doctors “lie” but some are more willing to endorse compensation. The other day I was looking at BC welfare statistics. Somehow we have 3x the number of “disabled” claimants than we had in 1990.

5x the number.

 

 

 

As seen in Figure 1 and in Petit and Tedds (2020), the reforms over our time period converted the B.C. IA system into a majority disability system. Disability Assistance moved from making up 10% of the caseload in 1995 to 71% in 2019. If we add in persons with persistent multiple barriers and those on Temporary Assistance in the excused from work category (which includes people with short-term disabilities and illnesses), people with some form of disability or illness made up 78% of the caseload in 2019.
