Supporting Members through the RDSP Application Process

Completing the RDSP and Disability Tax Credit applications can be challenging. So we partnered with Ability Tax and Trust Advisors, providers of the Equal Futures RDSP program. Equal Futures is a social purpose initiative that provides an easy, efficient, and free service for eligible individuals to learn about, qualify for, and open an RDSP. Contact them at 1-855-773-7377 to help you with:

  • Eligibility assessment for the RDSP;
  • RDSP Qualification Filings;
  • Tax credit and benefits review; or
  • RDSP account opening support.

If you don’t currently have your Disability Tax Credit, you can get started by answering questions on the online assessment.

If you already have your Disability Tax Credit Certificate and want to set up your RDSP, talk to one of our Investment Professionals.
