The Child Disability Benefit gets paid out by the Federal government to Canadian Families in all provinces. You're maybe talking about being able to deduct the "Disability Amount" from the provincial part of your income taxes. I know you can deduct it in Ontario, that would be sad if you can't in Manitoba. Maybe something to lobby for! My understanding is that the federal amount can be deducted from the federal part of your taxes at least until your child is 18..
