A Private Member’s Bill to be tabled by Dr. Kellie Leitch, Member of Parliament for Simcoe—Grey, in the House of Commons in November 2018 seeks to reinstate the 2006 Children’s Fitness Tax Credit (CFTC) along with some additional support for parents with children with disabilities.
If passed, the Private Member’s Bill will allow:
Parents of a child aged 18 and under enrolled in an eligible physical activity to deduct up to $500 from their taxes in an eligible taxation year;
Parents of a child with a disability aged 21 and under to deduct up to $1000 from their taxes in an eligible taxation year;
Parents of a child with a disability aged 18 and under to combine both credits for a deduction of $1500 in an eligible taxation year.
