To assist you in understanding how the RDSP works for people in different situations, we’ve developed four scenarios:
Marie is a six year old, who lives in Toronto with her sister and mother. She has Down syndrome.
Marshall is a 15 year old, who lives in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia with his parents. Marshall has mental health concerns.
Sandeep is a 22 year old who lives near Vancouver. Sandeep doesn’t have a clear diagnosis but has challenges with the tasks of daily living.
Francine lives in Sherbrooke, Quebec. She is 35 years old and worked for more than 10 years as a nurse before she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
