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.
