What is the Disability Tax Credit?

The CRA: Disability Tax Credit (DTC) is a non-refundable credit designed to help people with disabilities (or their caretakers), cope with disability-related expenses by reducing the amount of income tax they're required to pay.

In order to qualify for the credit, the T2201 Disability Tax Credit (DTC) certificate, must be completed and certified by a medical professional, then approved by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

Those who qualify for the DTC may also qualify for other credits, such as the CRA: Canada Caregiver Credit amount.
