Post-Secondary Students

  • Effective Jan 1st 2017 the federal government eliminated the federal education and textbook tax credits. Students attending designated educational institutions in Canada or a university outside of Canada are eligible to use the carry-forward rule on any unused credits from prior years which can be claimed into 2017 forward. The Alberta Provincial education amount is $727 per month for a full time student and $218 per month for a part time student.

  • Scholarships, fellowships and bursaries are non-taxable if enrolled in a program that entitles the student to claim the education amount.

  • Students attending school and moving home for summer employment can claim moving expenses against this income to attempt to retain more education credits.
