I know each gov't department has their own definition/rules for being classified as disabled but VAC is detailed on your health history and it helps the adjudication process.  The CRA is the hardest, IMO, to get but there is some aid from your VAC history during their adjudication process.  

When you apply for the Disability Tax Credit you need to be MARKED RESTRICTED in one of the categories. Without the Marked Restricted, you'll have a very hard time getting the DTC.
what are the categories? Who designates a person marked restricted?

My mother qualifies for this (not military) but she is unable to work, unable to walk more than 25 meters. It is tough to qualify and lots of paperwork for your doctor to fill out.
do you mean it's tough to qualify for the disability payment, or just the tax credit or both?.l know of someone who is getting the tax credit but has not applied for the actual disabilty,they got the tax credit based on information obtained from VAC

Nemo - you are right on that. I have tried 3 times, and will give it one more kick. I am Dec, 100%, cppd. Put both physical and mental injuries in, but all that means squat to CRA. It’s a crap shoot. I agree with Bigrex when he said if you have gone Thur loads of red tape and assessments fm VAC to be deemed DEC, the DTC should be automatic. It’s too bad ea Dept does not play by the same rules. Maybe some decade some pencil pusher will see the light..Johnny Out..VVV

Yeah, you can be very disabled and even 100% according to CPP or SISIP and still not be eligible for the tax credit.

Hi Teentitan,

How is being over 100% suppose to assist with CPPD and the tax credit? I am contemplating applying for the tax credit but not sure if I fit the application requirements or not. Not interested in CPPD as it will simply offset TELB and pension.

Yes you are right Artie some disability payments from other gov't sources can and are deducted. What I am referring to is the two programs/credits that are important when you are over 100% disabled.....provincial aid for daily living aids that VAC does not cover (wheelchair lifts, ramps) and the disability tax credit with CRA, I believe it's over $6,000 credit (don't quote me on that amount).

You have to remember Artie there is absolutely no way a disabled/injured person is going to make more then what they made when working. If that was the case disability/workman comp programs would be in constant battle mode to prove fraud.

That is why benefits like CIA, CIAS were fought for by advocates to be created....it's in the first two letters Career Impact This is where being deemed over 100% disabled is supposed to help the veteran but some VAC bureaucrats and adjudicators didn't get the memo. But what benefit is not a battle when dealing with VAC?

thats crazy, l realize the public forum of PA vets fighting for life long pensions went no where, l suppose a campaign to expose this would go no where as well. Was you cancer attributed to military service..? I read somewhere how VAC doesn’t care about injuries that occur outside service/retirement in terms of whether a vet can find a job or not based on the sum of his injuries some forces related some not.

Artie Simm,

My cancer is 100% (5/5) related to military service.

l am sorry to hear that, you should be afforded everything VAC had to offer, no red tape

true,but doesn’t any other gov. Aid detract from whatever VAC is paying a vet.? Ie if a vet applies for CCP disability and let’s say he is given $1000 a month, doesn’t VAC subtract that from ELB or DEC or whatever other program a vet is on, l could be wrong but l thought that is how it works
