Those who create their own health care directive could benefit from a tax credit under a provincial Liberal government.
Leader Rana Bokhari said Friday her government would provide a $200 tax credit if someone were to create a so-called living will. It’s a document outlining preferred treatment options should the individual be unable to speak or motion.
“This really is one of the most stressful times for family and as a result they may be unable to come to grips with what their loved one really wants,” Bokhari said.
“By creating a living will or personal health care directive you take the decisions into your own hands. We believe Manitobans want this and we feel a modest tax credit will make that decision easier and more affordable.”
Voters head to the polls on April 19.
