It depends. In order to claim medical expenses you paid for a dependant, they need to be a resident of Canada at any time during the year. So, will she be considered a resident of Canada in 2017? I'm not familiar with the Super Visa, but I believe it allows them to stay in Canada temporarily for up to 2 years. What are her long-term plans? Is she planning to stay in Canada or move back home?
Furthermore, if you do establish that she's actually a resident of Canada for 2017, what kind of income does she have? The 3% medical expense net income calculation will still apply to her. So even if she's considered a resident of Canada, if her worldwide income is too high, you still might not be able to claim anything for her.
People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:
Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
