Thank you for the question.
What we could say is that the policy objective is to make it easier for individuals with severe disabilities to be assessed for purposes of the disability tax credit. As you mentioned, in many outlying rural regions, the nurse practitioner is often the first point of contact. We don't have a specific estimate of what the uptick or increase will be in eligibility for the disability tax credit.
We'll see how it plays out. Our sense is that for a good number of individuals, it might apply to them now, but they have to jump through more hoops and find a medical practitioner who is farther from them to get certified. That, in many cases, will make it easier for people, too. It's that reduction in time, and possibly costs, that will be of benefit to Canadians with disabilities.
