Family Support for Children with Disabilities

Being a parent is a tough gig.

It's a 24-hour job in which there are no breaks, fewer thanks, and no time for yourself. The pressure can be enormous, with your child's future heavily influenced on their upbringing.

Raising a child from infancy to adulthood is filled with challenges and tough choices every step of the way. Newborns can be at risk of birth defects, like congenital heart defects, spina bifida, down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, or other debilitating disabilities. Older kids starting or in school may show signs of ADHD, global developmental delay, conduct disorder, or one of many other learning disabilities.

But like a good parent, HelpCanadians is here when you need support, with access to family and disability resources in Canada. We can help you determine which physical and mental disabilities or medical conditions are eligible for the Canada Child Benefit or Disability Tax Credit, and how to apply for disability.

Disability Help

Defining what constitutes as a ‘disability’ isn’t clear cut. Medical conditions like IBS, diabetes, depression, and ADHD are regularly overlooked despite qualifying for the Canadian Disability Tax Credit.

We've created a comprehensive list of physical & mental disabilities that qualify for Canadian disability benefits, which you can find here!

Canadian Disability Benefits

Children with disabilities or special needs may qualify for:

  • Canada Child Benefit (CCB), formerly known as the Child Disability Tax Credit
  • Disability Tax Credit
  • Canada Child Disability Benefit (CDB), an extra government family allowance supporting parents for child care.
  • Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP)

Learn the steps and how we can help you apply for disability benefits. Note that if you’re already collecting the Canada Child Benefit, but your child’s condition precedes when he or she started receiving disability benefits, he or she may qualify for a Child Disability Tax Credit retroactive refund for up to 10 years. 

You can contact us for a free assessment or more information.
