As of March 22, 2017, nurse practitioners are included on the list of health professionals who can certify the impacts of impairments for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC).
Nurse practitioners can help people who have one or more disabilities that affect vision, speaking, hearing, walking, eliminating, feeding, dressing, and mental functions necessary for everyday life, as well as those who require life-sustaining therapy.
The updated DTC application form can be downloaded from the Canada Revenue Agency website (click here) or requested by calling 1-800-959-8281.
Just a reminder that through the Access RDSP initiative, DABC provides help and support to apply for the DTC to British Columbians who are eligible for the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP). The DABC are working in partnership with Plan Institute and the BC Aboriginal Network on Disability Society (BCANDS) so that British Columbians with disabilities have the supports they need to open an RDSP.
For more help please call us at 604-872-1278 or 1-800-663-1278, or call the Access RDSP hotline at 1-844-311-7526.
Thank you to the Vancouver Foundation for their generous funding of this work.
