    There is a T2201 that you need to file. Just go to the Revenue Canada website to find it. It's called a Disability Tax Credit. Depending on your income, you may be eligible for a monthly cheque and a tax deduction each year. Taking insulin is a "life sustaining therapy".

    There is also the Registered Disability Savings Plan. You can deposit up to $1500 per year and the government will give you grants based on how much you deposit. There are restrictions re how long you must leave the money in to get to keep the government grant, etc.

    Just a reminder to all....the Disabiltiy Certificate mentioned above by PP is only good for 5 years after which we need to reapply. We are just coming up to our 5 year mark and have to wait until next endo appt. to have forms filled out and all that fun stuff.

    Thanks Helen, I didn't know about that one! I am always surprised when I learn about things here that were not included in our "package" after diagnosis.
