How to claim travel expenses for medical treament, moving or Northern Residents?

Claim Travel Expenses

Claim medical, moving, or northern residents travel expenses on the following forms:

  • Medical treatment: Calculate your expenses and enter them in the Medical receipts entry window (for more information, in the in-product Help, under the Index tab, search for "medical expenses", then select "entering receipts").
  • Moving: Enter your expenses on form T1M - Claim for Moving Expenses.
  • Northern Residents: Enter your travel expenses on form T2222 - Northern residents deductions.

    Meals: With the simplified method, you may claim a flat rate of $17 per meal, to a maximum of $51 per day, without receipts.

    Vehicle expenses: With the detailed method, you must keep track of the number of kilometres driven during the tax year for your trips relating to northern residents deductions or moving expenses, or the 12-month period you choose for medical expenses.

    To determine the amount you can claim, multiply the number of kilometres by the cents/km rate from the chart below for the province or territory in which the travel begins.
