Can I claim a wig as medical expense for cancer patient?

Thanks for your question. Yes, you can claim a wig as a medical expense but you will need a prescription certifying the wig is needed due to cancer. This can be found in this CRA link:"Wigs – the amount paid for a person who has suffered abnormal hair loss because of a disease, accident, or medical treatment – prescription needed."
