Update on the Disability Tax Credit for people living with ADHD
CADDRA has been made aware of increases in the number of rejected applications for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) for people living with ADHD. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) rejections include individuals who had been DTC eligible for many years, but are now being rejected when their DTC eligibility has come up for renewal.
Survey of Healthcare Professionals
CADDRA invites Canadian healthcare providers to please fill out the following survey regarding their experiences with the DTC applications in regard to individuals with ADHD and/or related cormorbitities. We will include the findings in our outreach to the federal government.
Complete the survey here by February 8, 2019.

CADDRA supports the recommendations made by the Disability Advisory Committee in the examination and study of the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) and the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) in June 2018.
