List of Eligible Disabilities



The Canada Revenue Agency doesn't issue a list of disabilities that qualify for the Disability Tax Credit. The fact is that hundreds of disabilities may lead to eligibility. The key factor is not the "name" of the disability, rather it is the "consequence" of the disability on your everyday activities. Therefore the following Disability List is simply intended to give you a good idea of the scope of disabilities that are applicable to this program.

If your particular disability is not listed, don't be concerned! Just complete the Free Consultation Form or call our toll-free number and one of our trained consultants will be pleased to discuss your particular situation.
