For persons with a disability there is an income tax credit — Disability Tax Credit (DTC) provided through Canada’s federal revenue agency.
The DTC is a non-refundable tax credit that provides tax relief for individuals who have a severe and prolonged physical or mental impairment. Application is made with the support of your doctor through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). We have heard of cases where CRA has backdated the credit and made corresponding taxable adjustments.
