Did you know?

Disability Tax Credit benefits Canadians with diabetes.  Some Canadians who use insulin to manage their diabetes may be eligible for a federal tax.  Since May 2004, Canadians using an insulin pump have been eligible for a tax credit. Announced as part of the recent federal budget, the criteria for the Disability Tax Credit will be expanded for 2005 to include Canadians with diabetes who inject their insulin, in addition to those who use an insulin pump.

Parents of children who are eligible for the disability tax credit may also claim the disability tax credit supplement for children, which provides additional tax relief.  They may also receive assistance from the Child Disability Benefit, which is paid as a supplement of the Canada Child Tax Benefit to low- and modest-income families caring for a child with a disability.
