Children’s Fitness Tax Credit


The Government of Canada proposes to allow, starting in 2007, a non-refundable tax credit on eligible amounts of up to $500 paid by parents to register a child (under the age of 16) in an eligible program of physical activity.

Updated information on this matter can be found on Sport Manitoba’s website

www.sportmanitoba.ca under Resources/Children’s Fitness Tax Credit. We recognize that in most cases your member clubs will be responsible for the receipt issuance, so please pass this information on. The following material can be found on our website:

Specific inquires can also be directed to Canada Revenue Agency at 1-800-387-1193.

Please contact your Sport Consultant or Finance Officer if you have any questions.
