The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has tax credits, deductions, and benefits to help students. Make sure you claim those you are eligible for when you file your income tax and benefit return. Even if you have little or no income, you should still file your income tax return to claim eligible credits and benefits.

After you file your 2015 income tax and benefit return, there are still a few things you should do.

If you paid for hospital services, paid to live in a nursing home, or bought medical supplies such as pacemakers, vaccines, or walking aids, you may be able to claim a non-refundable tax credit based on these and other eligible expenses when filing your income tax and benefit return.
