C-240 An Act to amend the Income Tax Act (First Aid Tax Credit)

This enactment put forward by MP Bryan May (Cambridge) amends the Income Tax Act to provide a non-refundable tax credit to individuals who complete a first aid or other health and safety instructional program or course.

The bill would provide a non-refundable tax credit to those who take an accredited first aid, CPR, or AED training course. This non-refundable tax credit would provide a deduction in the amount owing equal to the lowest federal income tax rate, currently 15%. On a $100 first aid course, this would be a $15 savings. Parents are able to claim the credit on behalf of a qualifying child.
