Were you infirm in 2015?

Since the income tax act has no definition for infirm, if you have an impairment in physical or mental functions and your medical practitioner has documented the infirmity by describing the nature, commencement, and duration of said infirmity, your impairment will qualify for certain tax credits. For children, the impairment must be prolonged and indefinite, and the child must be dependent on you for assistance in attending to personal needs and care when compared to children of the same age. Temporary illness is not classified as an infirmity.
