Training Tax Credits For Employers

Employers are eligible for refundable training tax credits through the Provincial and Federal government for each year of training for registered Apprentices.

The federal government also provides a non-refundable credit for Employers for the first 24 months of Red Seal apprenticeship programs.

Employers are eligible to claim:

10% of wages up to a maximum of $2,000 per year for each Apprentice, for the first 24 months of registration

As an Employer, you will be able to claim the AJCTC on your individual income tax return, on line 412 – Investment tax credit, by filing Form T2038(IND), Investment Tax Credit (Individuals).

Also, any unused credit may be carried back 3 years and carried forward 20 years.

When two or more related Employers employ the same Apprentice, special rules apply to ensure that the $2,000 limit is allocated to only one Employer.

For more information visit CRA‘s website.

Completion Tax Credit Level 315% of eligible salary and wages up to $2,500
Completion Tax Credit Level 415% of eligible salary and wages up to $3,000

Employers are eligible to claim the Completion Tax Credit for each Apprentice that completes level three (3) of their technical training and Level 4 Certificate of Qualification with Red Seal Endorsement.

The Completion credit is based on the salary and wages you pay to an Apprentice in the 12 months prior to the Apprentice completing Technical Training Level 3 and Graduating from the Apprenticeship Program.
