Children and young adults under the age of 25 in the respective tax year can have their fees claimed under the Manitoba Fitness Tax Credit.  The Manitoba Fitness Tax Credit allows claims for fitness activities for children and young adults up to age 24. The cost of up to $500.00 in eligible fitness activities, as defined under the Province of Manitoba, may be claimed per child or young adult. For a child/young adult less than 18 years of age at the end of the year, the claim may be made by the child/young adult, or their parent. For a young adult 18 to 24 years of age at the end of the year, the claim may be made by the young adult, spouse or common-law partner.

This will provide an annual non-refundable benefit of up to $54 per youth. Children and young adults with a disability, on whose behalf at least $100 is spent for qualifying fitness activities, will be eligible for an additional $54 credit for a maximum credit of $108 – mirroring the federal treatment of children with a disability. The credits reduce Manitoba income tax otherwise payable in the tax year.

The Province's tax credit is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Learn more...
