Comment: Being the first research-based graduate programs in Canada which critically study disability from an interdisciplinary approach, they contribute to emerging research examining the systemic social, political, legal and economic barriers to the full societal inclusion of persons with disabilities. Admitted full-time PhD students are “given” a financial support package. Subject to government funding, full-time Master’s students are “eligible” for a financial support package. (Note that some conditions may apply.)
