Disability Benefits in Canada for Blindness
For an ordinary living person the term blindness indicates the inability to see through eyes or visual organs. Anyone who has lost his or her ability to see like another normal person is known to be blind. That term however does include people who have partial sight, can only perceive light or may not be able to see color etc. The standard definition of a legally blind condition has now become standardized across the world and refers to an irreversible condition.
In Canada, persons who are legally blind or blind or deaf blind or partially sighted are eligible for government entitlements and benefits. Verification of the disability can only be authorized by a practicing ophthalmologist, after original diagnosis. The definition of the condition as it applies for disability classification does include people with some sight. In Canada and in many other countries the rule that applies is (6/60) and (20/200). This means that what a person with normal vision can see from 60 m, the one with significant blindness will see from 6m. Visual impairment is a significant condition and impacts the day-to-day existence of the patient. It also brings in an element of unknown risk and vulnerability as the blind person can inadvertently injure or harm themselves.
Statistics in Canada show that visual impairment can occur due to four major conditions namely:
A) Macular Degeneration
B) Diabetic Retinopathy
Some of these conditions can be treated with professional eye care and vision enhancement treatments. This is a condition which can severely impede a person’s ability to lead a normal life The Canadian revenue Agency recognizes blindness as a form of disability and helps to work with affected patients and their families to seek out maximum disability tax credits as per the eligibility norms.
It is easy to seek a free online assessment of your condition through logging in at the website of the Canadian Disabilities Corporation. After that a formal application the process to seek disability tax benefits starts. The Canadian Disabilities Corporation reaches out to treating doctors to seek a confirmation on the disability status. They also see if your case meets the criterion of disability as set by the CRA. The patient should have a medical or mental condition for 12 months or longer or one that could last 12 months or more. The condition should restrict their ability to perform life tasks. The supporting family member of the patient is also eligible for the tax benefits.
Going through an organization like Canadian Disability Organization helps because they can expedite the case and work through the various laws and schemes that help to get the maximum benefits.

“CDTS has changed the life for both my child and I. Raising a child with autism is not easy and can be very expensive. With my current income, I could not afford some of the courses, and workshops necessary to educate myself on my son’s disability. But with the help and professionalism of CDTS, I was able to get the money I needed to help educate myself on my son’s disability and put him in programs that help develop his skills. “

“I’m going to explain why I am so grateful to the CDTS and all that they have done.“
Being diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, I have been fired from jobs continuously. I didn’t have very much money because of the loss of jobs; I couldn’t sit at my desks for more than twenty minutes without having to go to the bathroom. I was really in a bad situation with nowhere to turn, until someone introduced me to CDTS. With the help of CDTS, I was able to receive the money I deserved and they did everything, they were so professional even though I was embarrassed about my disability, they made me feel as if it was nothing.”
