Coquitlam event to explore two tax benefits

August 7, 2018 by  

The Canadian federal government offers a variety of tax and savings programs for families with a child who has mental, physical, developmental or other challenges, and these will be the topic of a discussion that will be held in Coquitlam this fall.

Dyslexia BC has made arrangements to host an information session that will share details about the Canada Disability Savings Program (RDSP) and Disability Tax Credit (CDTC). It is intended for parents and caregivers, and the organizers noted that it will help them to navigate through the system of applying for these benefits.

The participants in the workshop will be led through a review of these two initiatives, including what sort of assistance is available and what allows a person to be qualified for this help. There will also be a discussion of the application process and what steps a caregiver or parents can take to maximize the chance that theirs will be approved. Attendees will also learn how they can make these programs work best for them and their child, and plan for their future needs.

The registration fee to sit in on this workshop is $5 each. Stationery printers can provide customized presentation folders and other items for this sort of event.

The Disability Tax Credit and Registered Disability Savings Info for Parents will be offered by Dyslexia BC on September 10. It will be held in the community room at 541 Clarke Road.
