Suppose that for some reason (family connections, unaffordability, ...) someone lives in a town a train ride away from one of Canada's expensive cities (Toronto, Vanvouver).
He makes most or all of his income in the city he commutes to. He maintains a primary residence in his hometown.
Does the CRA give him a reprieve for the expenses he incurs to either:
- commute daily by train.
- maintain a second, sleeping residence in his work town.
I assume that if he has some kind of corporate structure, then the commute and possibly the second residence could become legitimate business expenses. Here I am asking about an ordinary worker. The note on this page suggests that there isn't one, but I'm hoping someone here has the expertise to confirm one way or the other.
