Post-Secondary Students

  • Post-secondary students are eligible to claim a federal education amount of $400 per month for full-time students and $120 per month for part-time students. Also, two part-time slips could count for the higher full-time status. A textbook credit can also be claimed of $65 per month for full-time students and $20 per month for part-time students. The provincial education amount is $628 per month for a full time student and $188 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.
