Training Tax Credit
The training tax credit is for employers and apprentices who take part in eligible apprenticeship programs administered through the Industry Training Authority (ITA).
The training tax credit is currently effective until the end of 2019. Budget 2020 proposes that the credit be extended until the end of 2022.
The ITA oversees B.C.’s industry training and apprenticeship system, including the administration of Red Seal (Inter-provincial) and non-Red Seal (B.C.-recognized) training programs.
There are three main elements to the training tax credit:
- Basic credit for non-Red Seal training programs
- Completion credit for Red Seal and non-Red Seal training programs
- Enhanced credit for First Nations individuals and persons with disabilities
