Teachers in Canada go above and beyond for their students, often paying out of pocket. In 2016, we created the Eligible Educator School Supply Tax Credit to address this. During the pandemic, they showed time and time again the lengths they would go at their own expense, to ensure children are learning.
A re-elected Liberal government will:
- Increase the refundable tax credit to 25% (from 15%).
- Expand eligibility criteria to include tech devices and ensure that teaching supplies purchased to perform employment duties are eligible, no matter where that may be.
