Children and adults with type 1 diabetes MAY qualify for a Federal and Provincial Disability Tax credit.
I could not find a discussion on this topic ...so here goes : I found on the Childrens Hospital , Vancouver , BC 's website : dtcdiab.pdf( 69KB ) ....I am the gal , that does not know much about computers, so I hope you are able to open this without problems, alternatively google BC Childrens Hospital Vancouver, link to Endocrinology & Diabetes Unit , Diabetes handouts, Especially for parents and caregivers. The CDA website , under advocay has a heading as well .
I have successfully applied in the past , however my GP did not complete the form correctly for 2007 tax year and I was denied...I have more home work to do for the coming tax year. My Specialist said, that she will sign the form , so I am optimistic( as a pumper and CGM user ) .
Edit, December 19, 2010.
...According to the posting I added : Registered Disability Savings Plan is dependent on qualifying for the DTC .
Edit , Jan . 14, 2011 with thanks to Jimmy !! ...the link to the printable form ; please note it states , one cannot save the form on the computer
Edit( thanks Peetie for the ASK ) : May 26, 2012 T2's on MDI/insulin pumping and testing intensively may qualify
