A free workshop on the federal Disability Tax Credit will be held in Langford on Sunday April 2.
The seminar-style workshop will be hosted by local MP Alistair MacGregor (Cowichan-Malahat-Langford) along with Peter Julian, MP (New Westminster-Burnaby).
Why this workshop?
“I want to make sure that every eligible Cowichan-Malahat-Langford resident knows how to access this important tax credit,” says MacGregor.
“Many people living with disabilities are struggling with rising inflation. It’s time for the federal government to make them a real priority in Canada,” says the third-term MP who is also the NDP Critic for Food Price Inflation.
“You or someone you know may be eligible for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) which is retroactive for up to 10 years. Being eligible for the DTC can open the door to other federal, provincial, or territorial programs such as the Registered Disability Savings Plan, the Canada Workers Benefit and the Child Disability Benefit.
