Child Tax Credit

Beginning in 2014, the Government of Canada provided a non-refundable tax credit on eligible amounts of up to $1000 paid by parents to register a child in an eligible program of physical activity.   The credit applies for children who are under the age of 16 at any time during the year.

It is important to note that the tax credit applies to session fees paid any time in the calendar year regardless of the period that the skating fees may apply to.  (For example: Fees paid in 2009 for 2010 sessions are eligible for the 2009 tax credit.)

Further details regarding this tax credit are available on the Government of Canada website:
