More Support for Caregivers
Canadians place a high premium on taking care of one another. Over the last year, the demands on Canadians, particularly women, who care for family members, be they adult children, aging parents, or a sick relative, have been incredibly high. We believe a government should support the Canadians who take care of our families and communities.
A re-elected Liberal government will:
- Expand the Canada Caregiver Credit into a refundable, tax-free benefit. This will help 200,000 more Canadians qualify, and increase support for 448,000 people.
- Make the Canada Caregiver Credit refundable, allowing caregivers to receive up to $1,250 per year.
