For some people, it may be that mobility poses a significant challenge: for instance, the ability to walk even a short distance like one city block.

The first example shows a person with no apparent mobility impairment, walking a city block without any issues.

In this example, the individual would not qualify for the disability tax credit (DTC).

The second example shows a person using a cane that assists the person in walking at a similar pace to an individual walking without the use of an aid.

In this example, the individual would not qualify for the DTC because the individual is able to walk the city block with the use of an aid, without taking an inordinate amount of time.

The third example shows a person attempting to walk a city block, however this individual has to stop frequently to rest, because of shortness of breath or pain.

In this third example, the individual would qualify for the DTC.
