This chapter examines disability insurance programs in Canada, and analyzes the long-run trends in Canada’s Pension Plan Disability Insurance participation. It relates these trends to changes in different measures of health and provides an institutional analysis of policy changes in order to explain the drivers of changes in disability insurance utilization through time. The results show that changes in program rules have a large impact on receipt of disability insurance. In contrast, the long-run trends in the measures of health do not appear to have a strong relationship with the trends in disability insurance participation.
