Children's Arts Tax Credit

Through the Next Phase of Canada's Economic Action Plan, the federal government introduced a 15% non-refundable Children's Arts Tax Credit to better recognize the costs associated with children's artistic, cultural, recreational and developmental activities.

The CATC will let you claim eligible expenses of up to $500 per year for each of your children who are:

  • under 16 years of age at the beginning of the year in which the expenses are paid; or
  • under 18 years of age at the beginning of the year in which the expenses are paid if the child is eligible for the disability tax credit.
