Ms. Langelier moved around a lot but she never changed employers from 1996 to 2012. In 2006, she moved 61 km from her Edmonton employer. She moved back in 2010. She claimed her moving expenses for the year. As Justice Favreau found nothing substantial changed in her employment, he denied her claim for the moving expenses.
This case seems easier than it was. The TCC has conflicting decisions on whether you can get the moving expense deduction in ITA s. 62 if you move homes while employed at the same place. Generally, though, the TCC at least demands proof that your responsibilities became heavier. Ms. Langelier couldn't show that. (See paras. 15-21 for a review of the cases and facts.)
