Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that can affect any part of the digestive tract. Up to 170,000 Canadians are currently living with Crohn’s disease. Many with Crohn’s do not realize they qualify for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) but in fact, they do.
Living with Crohn’s disease in Canada can pose challenges for individuals, as it can significantly impact their quality of life, daily activities, and healthcare expenses. The symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease can have a profound impact on your well-being and result in additional healthcare expenses. The government recognizes the financial burden faced by individuals with Crohn’s and offers financial assistance through the DTC.
