Wayne Phelan Says Children's Arts and Learning Tax Credit Is Good For Families

September 27, 2019

The Children’s Arts and Learning Tax Credit will help Island families enrol their children in activities that support Children's physical and mental health.

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.
