The Applicant, a former physical education teacher, was found entitled to Canada Pension Plan Disability Benefits based on “overwhelming medical evidence”. The Social Security Tribunal, in reaching their decision, held that “CPP does not require that Appellants be bedridden or remain house bound”. Indeed, the fact that “the Appellant attempted to participate in recreational activities; travelled and occasionally participated in volunteer activities is not, in the Tribunal's opinion evidence that she was or is currently capable of participating in substantially gainful employment”.
