I need help with my Disability Tax Credit
You can ask for support before, during and after applying for your DTC.
Are you living with a severe mental or physical disability? Do you have trouble with daily activities or need help from another person? Do you rely on an assistive device or service animal or are receiving life-sustaining therapy?
If so, you may be able to get help with your disability costs through the Disability Tax Credit. This tax credit can also help you get access to other federal benefits.
You will need a doctor and/or medical professional to fill in the medical forms which are part of some benefits application process (Disability Tax Credit, Canada Pension Plan- Disability and provincial and territorial benefits).
If you do not already have a doctor who knows you, your medical history and how you are impacted in your daily living with a disability, please see below on how to find a doctor who will work with you.How to find a doctor or nurse practitioner who will work with you

Important information about benefits for Indigenous Peoples
If you are Indigenous there are many things that affect the benefits you can get and the dollar amounts you can get from them. These include the agreements your band or governing body has with provincial, territorial, and federal governments. Before applying to any benefits, you should speak with your governing body, if applicable.
AFOA Canada and Prosper Canada are currently seeking funding to develop an online tool that serves the needs of Indigenous people living in Canada.
