Living With Anaphylaxis


The Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) recently ruled that, although an allergy as such is not a disability, there might be people "who have a disability for the purposes of [federal legislation] which can be attributed to their allergies." In making this ruling, the CTA considered the World Health Organization's definition of disability, which includes "activity limitations."

The agency will investigate complaints by passengers who have had significant in-flight allergic reactions. If you have had an allergy-related problem with air travel, you can now file a complaint about your experience on the CTA web site: (Globe and Mail, Tuesday, May 14, 2002).
