A large percentage of our clients suffer from fibromyalgia (FM) and have approved Disability Tax Credit (DTC) certificates at Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). FM adversely affects the quality of life, and the societal costs based on medical expenses, lost wages and lost tax revenue. In fact, many of our clients require expensive monthly injections given by a qualified medical professional to control the pain associated with their FM. So the annual DTC refund ($1000-$1700) our clients receive from filing their taxes, helps to pay for this medical cost and many others.
