Tax credit for children’s activities 2017

Federal government eliminated the Children’s Fitness and Arts Tax Credits for 2017 and future tax years.
For Quebec:
You can claim a refundable tax credit for the physical activities or artistic, cultural or recreational activities of an eligible child, if:

  • You were resident in Québec on December 31, 2017.
  • Program/course lasted for at least 8 consecutive weeks or at least 5 consecutive days (in the case of a summer camp)
  • Your family income does not exceed $135,085 (line 275)
  • You have a receipt


Eligible child: who was born after December 31, 2000, but before January 1, 2012 → 6 to 18 y.o.

Tax credit is 20% of amount paid.
Maximum allowable is $500 * 20% = $100 per child.
