Table of Disabilities


The Table of Disabilities (TOD) is a legislated/statutory instrument used to assess the extent of a disability for the purposes of determining disability benefits. The Table considers the relative importance of a certain body part/system to assess the level of impairment and the impact that impairment has on the individual's quality of life.

In June 2021, we started a multi-year initiative to modernize the Table of Disabilities. The update will ensure our approach to assessment reflects advances in health research and best practices, and will apply a Gender-Based Analysis Plus mindset throughout. More information.
