Children’s Fitness Tax Credit

The Government of Canada is providing a tax credit on amounts of up to $500 paid by parents of children participating in eligible fitness programs. This amount will include paid registration and training fees only. The credit applies to children up to the age of 16 participating in a program of at least 8 weeks providing a significant amount of physical activity. Currently, the Clarington Swim Club’s Novice, Youth Fitness and Competitive programs meet that requirement as long as the child is under the age of 16 and has been attending practice regularly. Please contact your accountant or for further information.

If you would like a copy of your tax receipts, please contact the club at 905-442-4636 or email
