Press Release

Media Advisory: Canada’s leading diabetes organizations to provide an update on efforts to reverse changes to the Disability Tax Credit


Posted on: 02 Dec 17

OTTAWA, Dec. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

WHAT:  Canada’s leading diabetes organizations to host a NEWS CONFERENCE to provide new information about their efforts to reverse changes in eligibility for the Disability Tax Credit.
  
WHY: Hundreds of Canadians with type 1 diabetes have been denied the Disability Tax Credit since May and many are at risk of being told they will have to close their Registered Disability Savings Plans (RDSP) at a potential cost of tens of thousands of dollars to each person.  The medication, supplies and medical devices needed to manage type 1 diabetes can cost Canadians up to $15,000 out of pocket annually and if recent changes to Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA’s) procedures for reviewing Disability Tax Credit applications are not reversed, many Canadians with type 1 diabetes will not have the resources required to manage their disease.
  
WHO:  Dave Prowten, President and CEO, JDRF Canada
Kimberley Hanson, Director, Federal Affairs, Diabetes Canada
[Kim Lacombe, Eastern Canada Director, JDRF Canada]
[Up to two individuals living with diabetes]
  
WHEN: Monday, December 4, 2017, at 10:00am EST.
  
WHERE: National Press Theatre, 150 Wellington St, Ottawa, ON
