Children's fitness tax credit

The Government of Canada allows a non-refundable tax credit based on eligible fitness expenses paid by parents to register a child in a program of physical activity.

Amount of the tax credit

The children's fitness tax credit lets parents claim up to $500 per year for eligible fitness expenses paid for each child who is under 16 years of age at the beginning of the year in which the expenses are paid.
