How far back can I claim medical expenses, I have some from 2013 I did not use

Just wondering how many medial expenses I can use from 2014? I have some from 2013 I did not use that would get me over the amount needed to claim to get money back. Can I use thee?

How far back can I claim medical expenses, I have some from 2013 I did not use

You may claim these if they fall within a 12 month window ending in 2014.
You get to define the claim window so as to get the most benefit.

Say you incurred expenses in August 2013. You could define a window starting July 2013.
But you might then have to defer claiming some 2014 expenses.

CRA expects you to track your Medical claims. they do not do it for you.
But, you must not claim the same expense twice, it must be eligible.
Keep all receipts and statements as CRA may ask for copies.
