moved for leave to introduce Bill C-225, An Act to amend the Income Tax Act (expenses incurred by caregivers).
Mr. Speaker, this bill relates to the bill concerning employment insurance, where people can take time off work to care for their loved ones. They incur expenses. They may have to purchase medical equipment, prescriptions, et cetera, or they may need to hire someone for respite leave. Those expenses should be tax deductible.
