The Disability Tax Credit will be available to a person who has Multiple Sclerosis or a family member supporting an individual with the condition. The consultants at Disability Credit Consultants can advise you how to claim your credits.
Multiple Sclerosis or MS is a disorder that targets the nervous system and particularly affects the spinal cord and the brain. The nerve cells in the body are usually protected by a covering called myelin. In the case of MS, the myelin is damaged. As a result, signals between the brain and body slow down. As more and more nerve cells become affected, bodily functions which are controlled by the nervous system such as walking, speaking, writing and memory etc. also deteriorate.

The cause of MS has not been unequivocally established, although researchers point to a combination of genetic, environmental and infectious factors and possibly other factors like vascular problems. Symptoms include weakness of the muscles, visual impairment, a numbness or prickling sensation, memory related problems and loss of balance or coordination. These may vary from mild to severe and last for a short or long duration. These usually result in other forms of mental changes such as reduced concentration levels, depression, inability to perform tasks in order and reduced attention span. In severe forms, some may also suffer from sexual dysfunction and have their bladder control and bowel movements affected.
The four types of MS are Benign, Relapsing, Secondary Progressive and Primary Progressive. Although there is no cure, medications can help slow the development of the disease.
The Canadian Government recognizes MS as a disability and offers assistance. One form of this assistance is the Disability Tax Credit. The application process, however, is not straightforward.
