More Tax Relief for Families

A new Conservative Government will restore and enhance two tax credits for families previously scrapped by the Trudeau Liberals.

With the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit, a new Conservative government will:

  • Allow parents to claim up to $1,000 per child for expenses related to fitness or sports-related activities;
  • Make the credit refundable so low-income Canadians benefit most; and,
  • Allow parents of children with disabilities to claim an additional $500 per child, per year.

With the Children’s Arts and Learning Tax Credit, a new Conservative government will:

  • Allow parents to claim up to $500 per child for expenses related to arts and educational activities;
  • Make the credit refundable so low-income Canadians benefit most;
  • Make it flexible, so children can get extra help studying a language or learning science, math or coding; and,
  • Allow parents of children with disabilities to claim double the amount, up to $1,000 per child, per year.

Under Justin Trudeau, Canadian families are under pressure and worried about their future. Half of families are just $200 away from insolvency at the end of each month. Canadian families’ net worth declined for the first time in a decade. And because of Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax, every day essentials cost more and more.
