Canadian PKU and Allied Disorders

This Private Members’ Bill would reinforce the legal right for the disability tax credit to PKU sufferers and end CRA’s systemic discrimination against them. Because it improves the wording of the Income Tax Act around diet regimes to include certain activities like preparing meals intended for the specific dietary management of a disease or condition like PKU, it offers hope for the fewer than 2,000 people with PKU in Canada. I am confident the bill will help the CRA better understand the disorder and ultimately consider PKU much like it considers other metabolism disorders like diabetes for the tax credit.
