What can I claim for working from home?

Expenses related to a home workspace can be included on line 22900 but there are considerations to review with the new allowances and possibilities available due to Covid-19 this year.  Here are Canada Revenue Agency links with information regarding Expenses Tax Info Centre   CRA  Eligibility criteria - Temporary flat rate method 

Note: For the flat rate method to be activated in TurboTax Online, you enter your T4 and scroll down to the bottom where you will be asked: Will you claim employment expenses for working at home due to COVID-19 for income on this T4? NEW!  You will then click on Employment Expenses found lower in the menu on the left side of the screen to then answer yes on the right screen. On the Employment Expenses Profile page, check the option: I didn't receive either form from my employer. On the next screen Check the flat rate method and enter the number of days you worked from home.  

If using TurboTax CD/Download please see our link below for guidance. Where do I claim my employment expenses in the CD/download edition of TurboTax? 

Thank you for using TurboTax.

I'm using TurboTax CD/Download. How do I use Temporary flat rate to claim employment expense? I don't see any option to enter the number of days working at home due to Covid-19.
