The National Conference on the Rehabilitation of the Physically Disabled was held in Canada. The conference mostly prioritized the needs of disabled veterans but led to progress for the disabled community at large. For example, a federal coordinator for vocational rehabilitation programming was created and “new cost-sharing agreements with the provinces. . . to meet the needs of a growing disabled population” were developed.(1)
