Yana’s father, Sasha, was having a hard time caring for himself after his wife died
so he moved into Yana’s home and began living with her family. Yana was
working as a store clerk and her husband was between jobs. Sasha had a hard
time walking and was in a wheelchair. The stairs in Yana’s house were not an
option. It was a trying time for everyone as they tried to make Sasha comfortable
but it seemed the only solution was to build a ramp into the house and create a
separate room on the main floor for Sasha but money was tight.
Yana learned about the Disability Tax Credit from a friend at work and she

claim to the CRA, getting $14,900.00 for Yana as her father’s sole provider.
They built their ramp and a beautiful sunny room for Sasha.
