Children's Tax Credits

A new Conservative government will introduce two tangible measures so Canadian families can worry less about their bottom line: the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit and the Children’s Arts & Learning Tax Credit.

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.
