Published: March 11, 2021


This private member’s bill would amend the Income Tax Act and the Canada Student Financial Assistance Act so that students enrolled in a designated educational institution with a Disability Tax Credit (DTC) certificate will receive a grant equal to their annual tuition fees. It is assumed that the bill will come into effect on August 2021, the start of the 2021-22 loan year.
