Canada Revenue Agency allows tax benefit for those who care for family members.
Health restricted Canadians do not have to earn a taxable income for the years they qualify for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC), in order to benefit from it. If they are provided any regular support for food, shelter, or clothing during any of the last ten years and/or future years, where they qualify medically for the DTC, by a family member, whether living with them or not, they may be able to transfer their DTC benefit in all or part to that family member. The DTC is a transferable tax refund credit. Call our Toll Free information line at 1-855-546-9199 to find out more.
