In 2018, I purchased a new factory vehicle to transport my wheelchair bound wife. The vehicle did not require any adaption. Does it require modification to qualify?

In 2018, I purchased a new factory vehicle to transport my wheelchair bound wife. The vehicle did not require any adaption. Does it require modification to qualify?

No it doesn't need to be modified after the purchase. As per CRA - Van – 20% of the amount paid for a van that has been previously adapted, (which is your case since you purchased it already wheelchair accessible) or is adapted within six months after the van was bought (minus the cost of adapting the van), to transport a person who needs to use a wheelchair, to a limit of $5,000 (for residents of Ontario, the provincial limit is $7,033).
